The comparison between Amazon ECS versus Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) for us came down to the other services already in motion. A lot of companies tend to go really deep with a particular vendor (Amazon, Google, Microsoft etc) and we were already using a bunch of Amazon services. The bundle pricing in that scenario made sense for us to stick with Amazon.

I chose Amazon ECS over Amazon EKS and other products because the whole infrastructure was decided to be designed on AWS cloud and Amazon ECS made it easier to make the clusters live in just a few minutes. Amazon ECS has better integration with other AWS services and we don't have to look for plugins to do the things, everything is available and can be configured from the AWS console.

We like Elastic Containers better because of the simplicity to create an application without losing control over it. It is simple, yet powerful, exposing only the parts that are needed without complicating the access to the nuts and bolts when more complicated adjustments are required. Especially when private/public networking and load balancing is required.

  • Azure Container Instances
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.
