ECS Services and Load Balancers

Working with Load Balancers using AWS ECS


Before you create an ECS Service and Load Balancer, you must create a Task Definition to run the Service. You can define multiple containers in your Task Definition.

Adding an ECS Service and Load Balancer Listener

For an end-to-end example of deploying an application using an ECS Service, see the AWS Quick Start Tutorial and choose the Creating an ECS Service option.

Tasks run until an error occurs or a user terminates the Task in the ECS Cluster.

  1. Navigate to Cloud Services -> ECS.

  2. In the Task Definitions tab, select the Task Definition Family Name. This is the Task Definition Name that you created prepended by a unique DuploCloud identifier.

  3. In the Service Details tab, click the Configure ECS Service link. The Add ECS Service page displays.

  4. In the Name field, enter the Service name.

  5. In the LB Listeners area, click Add. The Add Load Balancer Listener pane displays.

  6. From the Select Type list box, select Application LB.

  7. In the Container Port field, enter a container port number.

  8. In the External Port field, enter an external port number.

  9. From the Visibility list box, select an option.

  10. In the Heath Check field, enter a path (such as /) to specify the location of Kubernetes Health Check logs.

  11. From the Backend Protocol list box, select HTTP.

  12. From the Protocol Policy list box, select HTTP1.

  13. Select other options as needed and click Add.

  14. On the Add ECS Service page, click Submit.

In the Service Details tab, information about the Service and Load Balancer you created is displayed.

Verify that the Service and Load Balancer configuration details in the Service Details tab are correct.
