Automating ECS: Orchestrating in CodePipeline and CloudFormation (Part 2)

Posted on June 10, 2016 by Paul Duvall | 18 Comments

In this second and last part of this two-part series, I will demonstrate how to create a deployment pipeline in AWS CodePipeline to deploy changes to ECS images. In doing this, you’ll see not only how you can automate the creation of the infrastructure but also automating the deployment of the application and its infrastructure via Docker containers. This way you can commit infrastructure, application and deployment changes as code to your version-control repository and have these changes automatically deployed to production or production-like environments.
