Amazon ECS Anywhere

在去年年底 AWS 的公佈的「re:Invent 2020 – Preannouncements for Tuesday, December 1」裡面提到兩個有趣的產品,一個是 Amazon ECS Anywhere,另外一個是 Amazon EKS Anywhere,現在 Amazon ECS Anywhere 開放了:「Getting Started with Amazon ECS Anywhere – Now Generally Available」。

這兩個服務都是把自家的機器 container 化然後讓 AWS 的服務直接管理,只是一個是 ECS (AWS 自家的規格),另外一個是 EKS (基於 Kubernetes),這次丟出來當然很重要,不過還是會等 EKS Anywhere 出來後一起比較看看。

價錢的部份就是照機器數量算,一台機器大約 USD$7.38/month,以 bare metal 等級的機器來說倒是沒什麼問題:

You pay $0.01025 per hour for each managed ECS Anywhere on-premises instance. An on-premises instance is a customer-managed instance that has been registered with an Amazon ECS cluster and runs the Amazon ECS container agent.

這樣讓地端的機器更容易上雲,不過離台灣本地沒有 region 在網路的 latency 上就有點討厭了,另外一種搞法是找 dedicated hosting 或是自己塞機器進 colocation hosting,然後掛上這類服務?
