AWS Copilot Is Now Generally Available

AWS Copilot is an open-source CLI that makes it easy to build, release, and operate production-ready containerized applications on Amazon ECS and AWS Fargate.

Recently, Amazon announced the general availability of AWS Copilot, an open-source command-line interface that makes it easy for developers to build, release, and operate production-ready containerized applications on Amazon ECS and AWS Fargate.

Amazon said that AWS Copilot is designed for both existing ECS users, and new ECS users who want to move beyond manual management of lower-level infrastructure, and instead just start thinking about their application and its lifecycle.

AWS Copilot creates modern application deployments by default, based on production-ready patterns. These patterns include best practices designed by ECS engineers and customers over the years.

Copilot handles all the underlying details for you. You just need to provide your container and then let Copilot handle high availability deployments and load balancer creation and configuration. Users can even have Copilot create a deployment pipeline that will automatically redeploy the latest version of their application every time they push a new commit to their code repository
