Amazon ECS: a Platform to Run Production Containers

She also demonstrates the key features to build and run a container-based application on Amazon ECS.


Uttara Sridhar is currently a Software Development Engineer on the Amazon EC2 Container Service team, primarily focussed on improving the user experience. She has led and developed the web console for the service, and an open source command line tool that simplifies resource management from a local development environment.
