Discover the flexibility you need with Containers on AWS

Experience unmatched efficiency and agility

Containers have emerged as a powerful technology for modernizing software development and deployment on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Containers offer key benefits such as improved scalability, faster application deployment, lower infrastructure costs, and increased flexibility, making them an ideal solution for CTOs and business decision-makers looking to optimize their cloud computing strategies.

Virtusa has been leveraging Containers on AWS to help organizations achieve greater efficiency, faster time to market, and increased agility, all critical for staying competitive in today's digital landscape. AWS offers a robust container service, including Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), and AWS Fargate, backed by global infrastructure comprising approximately 80 Availability Zones (AZ) distributed across 25 regions. 

Business drivers of Containers on AWS
  • Improved scalability: Break down applications into smaller, more manageable components for quick and independent application scaling to quickly meet dynamic demands.
  • Faster application deployment: Enable developers to swiftly release new application features and updates for enhancing time to market to stay competitive.
  • Lower infrastructure costs: Less resource-intensive and lightweight than traditional virtual machines (VMs), enabling multiple containers on the same infrastructure, reducing overall infrastructure costs, and improving efficiency.
  • Increased flexibility: Developers can build applications once and run them on any platform, reducing the risk of vendor lock-in and allowing greater flexibility regarding where and how applications are deployed.
Containers on Amazon ECS

Virtusa can effortlessly deploy, manage, and scale containerized applications with Amazon ECS, a fully managed container orchestration service. Amazon ECS is deeply integrated with the AWS platform, providing a secure and user-friendly solution for running container workloads in the cloud and on-premises infrastructure with Amazon ECS Anywhere.

Containers on Amazon EKS
For running Kubernetes on AWS and on-premises data centers, Virtusa recommends Amazon EKS, a managed Kubernetes service. In the cloud, Amazon EKS automatically manages the availability and scalability of the Kubernetes control plane nodes responsible for scheduling containers, managing application availability, storing cluster data, and other key tasks.
With Amazon EKS, Virtusa's clients benefit from all the performance, size, dependability, and availability of AWS infrastructure as well as integrations with AWS networking and security services. EKS also offers integrated tooling and straightforward deployment to AWS Outposts, virtual machines, or bare metal servers, providing a consistent, fully supported Kubernetes solution for on-premises requirements.
Containers on AWS Fargate
AWS Fargate is a serverless, pay-as-you-go compute engine that lets Virtusa focus on building its clients' applications without managing servers. AWS Fargate is compatible with Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).
