          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.

          I don't like AWS BUT Pagely's VPS-3 makes it work. I still use FireHost for most things
