Amazon has now extended its EC2 container service to windows server containers. Currently, the support is in beta so it can’t be used for development process now. To use this feature amazon has provided its own version of Amazon ECS container agent and the code is now available on Github.
Microsoft earlier launched windows server 2016 and now its users can run containers on Windows server by making the use of Docker engine. Now developers can easily pack their windows executables into containers and run them on Windows server by using the same Docker engine. To set up the Docker engine for Windows Microsoft and Docker has worked collectively.
With the Docker support in Microsoft Windows Server 2016, Microsoft users can now package applications into images and run it on any Windows 2016 Server. Amazon EC2 lets users deploy and scale Windows Containers across Amazon EC2 windows instances. Due to its high scalability and the support of Docker containers allows users to run applications easily on a managed Amazon EC2 instances. The most interesting with Amazon ECS is that it manages users cluster infrastructure.
