在 Amazon ECS 上面固定時間跑某些東西，以前得自己用 AWS Lambda 帶 (或是自己架，不過這樣就要自己考慮 High Availability 架構了)，現在則是直接支援：「Amazon ECS Now Supports Time and Event-Based Task Scheduling」。
Previously, you could start and stop Amazon ECS tasks manually, but running tasks on a schedule required writing and integrating an external scheduler with the Amazon ECS API.
Now you can schedule tasks through the Amazon ECS console on fixed time intervals (e.g.: number of minutes, hours, or days). Additionally, you can now set Amazon ECS as a CloudWatch Events target, allowing you to launch tasks by using CloudWatch Events.
