Has anyone used AWS Fargate? I'm not all-in on AWS tech, and am feeling like it's better to keep things as agnostic as possible for projects. But maybe fancy tech is worth it? Or is this containers-lite?
@jws it’s a bit different. For Kubernetes (k8s) and AWS’s proprietary ECS, you still need to manage the instances where the containers are running on. Fargate is a service that does that for you — you still need to use k8s or ECS @33MHz@cgiffard
@cgiffard@33MHz@jws also, if you’re wary of vendor lock-in, I would highly recommend against learning ECS and waiting for EKS (amazon’s managed k8s service) to become public. Or use GCP and their GKE service
@keita I didn't connect K8S and ECS together like that before, as competing container orchestration options. I think I tried to say what you said. Briefer: Fargate = "Let Amazon worry about where containers run"? @cgiffard@33MHz
@keita@cgiffard@33MHz You’re making me want to burn my VPS down and rebuild. Maybe next year… Though I kinda want to go the FreeBSD route, I definitely am more familiar with Docker than with FreeBSD jail admin at this point.
