Amazon EC2 Container Service vs Docker Swarm Visualizer: What are the differences?
What is Amazon EC2 Container Service? Container management service that supports Docker containers. Amazon EC2 Container Service lets you launch and stop container-enabled applications with simple API calls, allows you to query the state of your cluster from a centralized service, and gives you access to many familiar Amazon EC2 features like security groups, EBS volumes and IAM roles.
What is Docker Swarm Visualizer? A visualizer for Docker Swarm using the Docker Remote API, Node.JS, and D3. Each node in the swarm will show all tasks running on it. When a service goes down it'll be removed. When a node goes down it won't, instead the circle at the top will turn red to indicate it went down. Tasks will be removed.
Amazon EC2 Container Service and Docker Swarm Visualizer are primarily classified as "Containers as a Service" and "Container" tools respectively.
Docker Swarm Visualizer is an open source tool with 2.58K GitHub stars and 406 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Docker Swarm Visualizer's open source repository on GitHub.

We use the container service so that we can deploy our application services with Dockerfiles, so that we can test locally and deploy to AWS simply.
Additionally, the ability to scale containers and have them automatically restart in case of failure is very helpful to our operations.
We use the EC2 registry for secure private container registration. When used in combination with I AM roles we can control customer access to repos on and individual basis.
Amazon EC2 is our primary application hosting solution. Most applications are not exposed on the internet and use a virtually private cloud to interact with each other.
With a little forethought, ECS can handle a good portion of my development stack as though it were production. 12 Factor configuration makes this a breeze.
