Amazon ECS adds domainless gMSA authentication for Linux and Windows containers

Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) announces domainless Group Managed Service Account (gMSA) support for Linux and Windows containers running on Amazon EC2. This integration allows applications hosted on Amazon ECS (on EC2) to easily authenticate with Microsoft Active Directory (AD) to access network shared resources. With this launch, customers can run containers that require AD authentication without joining the ECS nodes to the domain, even during autoscaling events.
