    Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS)

    Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) is well suited where you need the ease of managing the clusters by letting AWS do the stuff for you. Obviously, whenever you want to run the docker based workloads, it is always better to go for either AWS ECS or AWS EKS. If you are interested in staying at AWS only and don't want to be cloud-agnostic, then go for AWS ECS instead of AWS EKS. AWS ECS is cheaper than AWS EKS and also more managed by AWS and better integrated with other AWS services. If you want to run those workloads as serverless, then AWS ECS Fargate is the best option to go with. If you already have a Kubernetes based setup that you want to migrate to AWS, then go for AWS EKS instead of AWS ECS.

    Red Hat OpenShift

    Red Hat OpenShift is one of the best containerization and orchestration tools available today. It has wide support with all the popular programming languages and different development frameworks. It makes management and deployments very simple and easy for the engineers and saves a lot of time.

    Pros

    Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS)

    • One of the biggest advantages is the flexibility to change underlying EC2 instances. As the traffic or demand increases, we can easily change EC2 instances without any issues.
    • Amazon ECS APIs are extremely robust and one can start and stop containers by firing one post request only. So, it is not mandatory to keep the demo solutions up for every time. Just at the time of demo fire the command - make the container up and running - do the demo - down the container with API. A simple portal can control every container which helps non-technical (sales, marketing) to do the demo without keeping the solutions up for the entire time frame.

    Red Hat OpenShift

    • The same as many similar K8 vendor solutions, OpenShift provides a managed Kubernetes environment with advanced facilitative components built-in.
    • It provides the life cycle management/monitoring toolset to help users better visualize and understand both the application and infrastructure environment.
    • Provides the scaling and recovering mechanism to ensure the high resilience of the application.
    • CI/CD pipeline integration following the DevOps concept.

    Cons

    Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS)

    • A cleaner container service road map
    • It would be. nice to have more AI recommended cluster reductions
    • The UX could use some simplification
    Scott Kennedy | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Red Hat OpenShift

    • The shift from v2 to v3 was a huge transition, and Red Hat [OpenShift] really failed at making this step easy for users - their documentation at the time was fairly lacking
    • When things go wrong it can be hard to diagnose

    Leverage OpenShift Online constantly at both the free and paid tiers. While AWS is convenient, it often brings more administration than I want to deal with for a quick application (i.e. Drupal or Wordpress blog). OpenShift also simplifies the DNS registration and ability to share application environments with team members

    As I said before, the obserability is one of the weakest point of OpenShift and that has a lot to do with usability. The Kibana console is not fully integrated with OpenShift console and you have to switch from tab to tab to use it. Same with Prometheus, Jaeger and Grafan, it's a "simple" integration but if you want to do complex queries or dashboards you have to go to the specific console

    Support is relatively good, although the documentation sometimes is lacking, as well as outdated in our experience, especially when we initiated the process of using this service. But once we found how to assemble things, we haven't really required support from anyone at AWS, the service works without problems so we haven't had the need to contact support, which speaks well of how ECS is built.

    First of all OpenShift Help Portal is a great place to get assistance in case of any OpenShift platform related technical questions. When it comes to paid support subscription friendly support agents can find the right answer for you in a matter of minutes which is super efficient way of solving any critical issues.

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS)

    If you are using AWS, you will be using Amazon ECS. I have also used Azure Container Instances and it works just as well in Azure as ECS does in AWS. It's really all a matter of what cloud provider you are utilizing. Because of the "Cloud Wars," it's difficult to measure cross-cloud connectivity, but I have had better luck remaining cloud agnostic in other cloud providers than AWS (Azure, GCP). Because of the sheer volume of tooling in AWS and inter-connectivity between them, it's almost easier to be fully AWS if you are using it in any kind of capacity.

    The other platforms are cloud based, and less relevant when you have to choose an on prem scenario.Red Hat OpenShift encapsulates Kubernetes and provides more, so that you have an all-in-one platform instead of dealing with various separate services.[Red Hat] OpenShift is cloud ready, that is very useful for the day when you'll be ready to switch to the cloud.

    It's easy to understand what are being billed and what's included in each type of subscription. Same with the support (Std or Premium) you know exactly what to expect when you need to use it. The "core" unit approach on the subscription made really simple to scale and carry the workloads from one site to another.

    Return on Investment

    Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS)

    • We achieved minimum downtime.
    • The autoscaling kept the performance of the services great.
    • We saved money by running the workloads on AWS ECS in Fargate mode by having different settings for different services to save on the hardware configuration side as well as having scheduled tasks.

    • Reduce [the] friction of monitoring environments. This leads to [a] quicker troubleshooting process.
    • Completely remove the need to authenticate each and every time you want to check on a specific environment.
    • Faster deployment workflow increases [the] efficiency of developers when testing in lower environment containers.
