Fargate is almost like having a magical compute engine. You simply provide the container image and Fargate launches it for you in seconds. No servers to manage, no infrastructure to configure. Fargate auto-scales and load balances your containers and handles infrastructure security for you.

With AWS Batch on Fargate, you get all the power and automation of AWS Batch for scheduling and running batch jobs, combined with the speed, scalability, and ease-of-use of Fargate. No longer do you need to manage EC2 instances yourself.

The benefits are clear:

  • Faster start times to spin up compute
  • Auto-scaling of resources to match workload
  • Pay-per-use pricing - no idle capacity
  • Built-in security and infrastructure management

Whether you’re new to batch processing or an expert, Fargate can make your workloads easier. See for yourself and try AWS Batch on Fargate today!
