Amazon ECS simplifies Capacity Provider integration with Auto Scaling groups

Amazon Elastic Container Services (Amazon ECS) provides a Cluster Auto Scaling (CAS) capability to dynamically manage the scaling of your Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) Auto Scaling groups (ASG) on your behalf, so that you can focus on running your containers. Capacity Providers is the compute interface that links your Amazon ECS cluster with your ASG. With Capacity Providers, you can define flexible rules for how containerized workloads run on different types of compute capacity, and manage the scaling of the capacity. Capacity Providers improve the availability, scalability, and cost of running tasks and services on ECS. Starting today, we are simplifying the integration mechanism between Capacity Providers and ASGs by directly integrating with target-tracking scaling policy instead of relying on AWS Auto Scaling scaling plan.
