Phorest Cloud runs on Amazon Web Services. Last year, we made the decision to migrate the services that Phorest Cloud runs on to Docker. Each service was previously running on dedicated EC2 instances. We chose to use ECS (EC2 Container Service) as the tool to host Docker and orchestrate our deployments, and I’d like to share some of the things that happened as a result of the move to Docker and ECS.

We invested time in removing state from our system. ECS then let us deploy multiple tasks for our services, meaning we always have available containers to serve traffic, meaning we are now highly available.
