AWS re:Invent 2016: Running Batch Jobs on Amazon ECS (CON310)

Published on Dec 02, 2016

Batch computing is a common way for developers, scientists and engineers to run a series of jobs on a large pool of shared compute resources, such as servers, virtual machines, and containers. Amazon ECS makes it easy to run and manage Docker-enabled applications across a cluster of Amazon EC2 instances. In this session will show you how to run batch jobs using Amazon ECS and together with other AWS services, such as AWS Lambda and Amazon SQS. We will see how you can leverage Amazon EC2 Spot Instances to power your ECS cluster and easily scale your batch workloads. You'll hear from Mapbox on how they use ECS to power their entire batch processing architecture to collect and process over 100 million miles of sensor data per day that they use for powering their maps. Mapbox will also discuss how they optimize their batch processing framework on ECS using Spot Instances and demo their open source framework that will help you get up and running with ECS in minutes.
