InfoQ: Can you suggest the best configuration for AWS Fargate using ECS from an Availability Zone perspective?

One example is a particular service that is running soundly on EC2 but definitely needs moving into containers for better cost / scaling / velocity.

Fargate automates the provision of either AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS) or Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) resources.

Vlad Ionescu, an AWS Container Hero, in early April reported on his experiments with scaling Amazon Fargate for batch processing or background jobs.

Unlike ECS on EC2, Fargate does not support Task Placement — all tasks are spread across all available Availability Zones, as determined by the chosen subnets.
