Nates Dive into ECS
First go, seemed limited
Second go, things are starting to make sense.
Clusters are comprised of EC2 instances.
Instances run docker.
Docker is controlled by some amazon magic?
Containers are pushed to repos, seems like this is 1 to 1.
tasks are what actually instantiates containers.
Tasks can run services. Services are what you‘d think they are.
I had a basic python service running, but updating the service seemed less seemless than I expected. In attempting to get the new build of the container online I ended up with a stuck task that i couldnt delete.
