Working with Fargate could seem to be a daunting task in the beginning specially for those who are new to the concept of containers. So before starting with Fargate, I will give a bit of knowledge on containers which will help with further steps.

A little bit about Docker

Fundamentally a container is a process running in isolation from other containers sharing the same host. Docker provides a platform to develop, build and run your applications with containers. Each container has its own filesystem which is provided by Docker image. You could think of an image as everything your application needs to run: application code or built artifact, runtime, dependencies etc.

AWS CLI Configuration

For the sake of this article, I would be installing Docker on an AWS EC2 instance. Make sure that your IAM user has at least programmatic access.

Please follow the official guide here if you are unfamiliar with launching an EC2 instance. I have created an instance based on Amazon Linux 2 AMI in North Virginia region. Log on to the instance via ssh.

Run the command as given below.

aws configure

This command will ask you for access key id and secret access key once you hit enter button. If you don’t have these keys follow this official doc to configure the keys.

Copy the access key id and secret access key when asked. The cli looks something like this.
