What is AWS Fargate and How Can It Help Manage Cloud Resource Provisioning?
One of the greatest values of moving to the public cloud is the ability to reduce the costly ownership of on-premises computing resources.
In the on-premises architecture, organizations own and maintain their computing resources meaning they are responsible for a high up-front cost, consistent hardware upgrades, and over-provisioning of resources to account for future growth. In comparison, the public cloud allows organizations to spin up cloud instances and resources on-demand, allowing organizations to consume only resources that they need. This great benefit minimizes the over-provisioning and up-front cost is seen in the traditional on-premises data center.
AWS Fargate takes resource optimization one step further by providing a serverless compute engine for containers. This serverless compute architecture removes the need to provide and manage multiple EC2 instances, instead allowing organizations to use the precise compute resources for each application.
