If you need to deploy Docker containers, Amazon Fargate is a very good fit. It integrates very well with other AWS services like RDS, EFS, and Secrets manager. You can have a very robust application using those services. In case you have many containers to deploy, it is however more expensive
that if you use other services like ECS or EKS, since they allow you to
share the same infrastructure to deploy multiple containers.

I recommend this service for creating and growing a wide range of solutions, from the simplest to the most complicated ones. Even in a very competitive market for professional services, the central and distinctive techniques that gather the most reliable solutions and suppliers in one location may be enough to meet demand. In a single location, I can meet all of my technology needs and get access to superior assistance.

Usability

Amazon AWS

It's a very practical service to use. If you need to deploy any application with a Database, disk storage, you're pretty much set.
Everything around that can be taken care of using other AWS services. Like secrets manager, certificate manager, RDS ...
And the CI/CD part is also very easy to setup, you only need on AWS CLI command to trigger a deployment, and done !

Support Rating

Amazon AWS

AWS provides different support tiers. They are usually very reactive and are able to help solve the issues very quickly.
As for everything, the higher the support tier you get, the better and faster support you get.
If you're also a part of big company, you probably have solution architects at your disposal to help you with any inqueries.

I just researching and applying the tools on their platforms to ensure a good learning path, based on my needs. Reading the documentation related with resources, tools. Is too big, but I am trying to know more about it every day. It is a good way to know more about their resources. A new way to attract new customers. At the end of the day, we are all involved in improvement and automation of our tasks and resources for customers and end-users.

IBM's professional service for migrating data and implementing new cloud environment was perfect. They started to help us before we begin to bring together all data such as how can it could be best to transfer all data without problems. During the migration they watched all the process closely to prevent any failure. Lastly, after the migration, they gave us trainings on implementation.

Pricing and billing of AWS Fargate is loosely tied to your exisiting AWS billing. You're unlikely to only use Fargate in your AWS subscription, so you get billed for everything alltoghter.
Fargate is naturally a bit more expensive that usuel docker services, but with careful planning and architecturing, you can have a very manageable cost.
You can also rely on Saving plans to reduce your bill.

  • This allows us to recommend a platform to our clients that will quickly help them create new, efficient business processes with very little development.
  • This saves clients hours and days of manual analysis of images, allowing the system to do the work when attaching Object Storage to models.
  • There is a learning curve in utilizing the storage and the modeling, but once up and running, it works well during deployment.
