Docker teams up with AWS on bringing apps to the cloud
Docker and AWS collaborated to build a simplified workflow that allows developers to quickly and easily switch from running containers in a local Docker Desktop environment to Amazon ECS.

This accelerated path to modern application development and deployment allows customers to focus more effort on the unique value of their applications, and less time on figuring out how to deploy to the cloud.” said Deepak Singh, the vice president of Compute Services at AWS.

Developers will be able to use the Docker CLI and Docker Compose to start locally and run their multi-container apps straight through to deployment from Docker Hub to Amazon ECS.
