The Utoolity team is pleased to present Tasks for AWS 2.7 – this release adds new tasks to deploy Docker containers to the Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS), and supports succeeding a build for non existing AWS CloudFormation stacks. You can now create/update/delete Amazon ECS clusters and services, run/start/stop Amazon ECS tasks, and register Amazon ECS task definitions.
New tasks for the Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS)
You can now facilitate Amazon Web Service's new highly scalable, high performance Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) to deploy Docker containers across your development, test, and production environments - this is enabled by four new tasks:
- Create/Delete Amazon ECS Clusters
- Create/Update/Delete Amazon ECS Services
- Run/Start/Stop Amazon ECS Tasks
- Register Amazon ECS Task Definitions
New task to provide AWS Credentials Variables
Optionally succeed CloudFormation delete action for non existing stacks
Similar to the 'Make it so' option for the create/update CloudFormation actions introduced in release 2.2, it is now possible to Don't fail for non existing stack for the CloudFormation delete action to ensure all preconditions for subsequent tasks are met.
Support for Docker 1.5, Node.js 0.12.0, Python 3.4, Ruby 2.2 and 2015.03 Amazon Linux AMI in AWS Elastic Beanstalk tasks
The available solution stacks have been updated to include the latest versions, see the resp. announcements:
- Announcing support for Ruby 2.2, Node.js 0.12.0, and Docker 1.5
- Announcing support for Python 3.4 and 2015.03 Amazon Linux AMI
