Virtual machines have made this all much easier to manage, but this can still be costly. This is where Docker comes in. In this course, Managing Docker Containers on AWS with the GUI, you will gain the ability to publish Docker images using AWS. First, you will learn how to create and manage a cluster using Elastic Container Service (ECS). Next, you will discover Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR).

When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of working with Docker images needed to successfully manage Docker containers in AWS.
