The Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS) command line interface (CLI) provides high-level commands to simplify creating, updating, and monitoring clusters and tasks from a local development environment. The Amazon ECS CLI supports Docker Compose, a popular open-source tool for defining and running multi-container applications.
For a quick walkthrough of the ECS CLI, see the Amazon ECS CLI Tutorial.
