Learn how 99designs is using Amazon ECS, AWS Fargate and Datadog to deliver a scalable and highly resilient application for their customers. We will discuss how AWS Fargate works as a deployment target in Amazon ECS and how it takes away undifferentiated heavy lifting of operating host instances and allows your development teams to focus on their applications to bring value to their customers. We will also show how Datadog takes advantage of features in Fargate, such as accessing Task Metadata to provide you with insight into your containerized workloads without the burden of running your own host infrastructure.
