Amazon ECS Support for Windows Server Containers Exits Beta

In public beta for almost an entire year (started December 20, 2016), Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) now supports Windows Server containers for production.

Amazon ECS provides an ECS-Optimized Windows Server Amazon Machine Image (AMI), which is based on the EC2 Windows Server 2016 AMI and includes Docker 17.06 Enterprise Edition and the ECS Agent 1.16. This AMI provides improved instance and container launch time performance. The ECS Agent runs as a Windows Service, which provides an improved ECS Agent lifecycle management experience.

Additionally, Amazon ECS now supports Windows containers Memory and CPU limit(s) enforcement, including Amazon CloudWatch Memory and CPU utilization and reservation metrics at the service and cluster-level.

To use this new capability, choose EC2 – Windows when creating a new cluster in the ECS Management Console.
