Fargate launch type

You can use the Fargate launch type to run your containerized applications without the need of provisioning and managing the underlying infrastructure. AWS Fargate is the serverless way to host your Amazon ECS workloads.

The Fargate launch type is suitable for the following workloads:

  • Large workloads that require low operational overhead

  • Small workloads that have occasional burst

  • Tiny workloads

  • Batch workloads

For information about the Regions that support Fargate, see Supported Regions for Amazon ECS on AWS Fargate.
