Four Engineering Optimizations for Amazon ECS

Explore four essential engineering optimizations for Amazon ECS - rightsizing, task placement, autoscaling, and scheduled shutdowns. Learn how to enhance ECS service performance and reduce costs with real-world examples of CPU optimization, memory efficiency, and task management. Discover the benefits of AWS Graviton instances for cost-efficiency and performance, strategic deployment through task placement, and cost savings with larger instance types. Understand how autoscaling adapts to traffic changes and how scheduled resource shutdowns during off-peak hours can further reduce expenses. Optimize your AWS environment for better performance and cost-effectiveness with these proven strategies.

Amazon ECS Optimization Challenges 

Successful ECS optimization impacts financial performance including both cost savings through reduced overprovisioning and discount management, and revenue gains from application performance and latency gains. While ECS offers a range of controls and strategies, including rightsizing and utilizing spot instances, implementation is complex when managed with manual methods.

Autonomous Optimization of Amazon ECS at KnowBe4

KnowBe4's autonomous journey has led to 98% of their Amazon. ECS and Lambda services running autonomously, with a 27% cost reduction and over 1,100 autonomous actions in the past 3 months. KnowBe4 fhad aced an optimization challenge with their Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) services, leading them to adopt Sedai's autonomous optimization to reduce toil for engineers and improve efficiency. KnowBe4 implemented a three-part approach (Crawl, Walk, Run) to gradually adopt autonomous optimization, resulting in significant cost savings and performance gains.
