Simply starting your services in a Docker container is not enough for a robust microservices architecture! This session explains how to do it right. Why you should run your containers in the cloud, how to do so, and what options you have. To kick off the session, I'll recap container essentials in a live demo. Then I'll compare your options for running containers in the AWS cloud (AWS EKS vs AWS ECS). Drilling deeper into managed Kubernetes we will explore setup, deployment, load balancing and related open source projects.
