Why deploying Jupyter using Fargate over EC2

In this blog post we’ll walk you through the steps to move this application to a Docker container and execute it in Amazon ECS with AWS Fargate. This removes the need to manage any Amazon EC2 instances in the architecture.

AWS Fargate is a technology for Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) that allows you to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters. With AWS Fargate, you no longer have to provision, configure, and scale clusters of virtual machines to run containers. This removes the need to choose server types, decide when to scale your clusters, or optimize cluster packing. AWS Fargate removes the need for you to interact with or think about servers or clusters. Using AWS Fargate you can focus on designing and building your container applications, instead of managing the infrastructure that runs them.

AWS Fargate is a great approach if you want to eliminate operational responsibilities with Amazon EC2. AWS Fargate is fully integrated with the AWS Code services such as AWS CodeStar, AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodeDeploy, and AWS CodePipeline, making it very simple to configure an end-to-end continuous delivery pipeline to automate deployments to ECS.
