Create ECS Cluster

Create an Amazon ECS cluster

Use the following steps to create an Amazon ECS cluster. We will create an empty cluster so that we can manually create the Auto Scaling resources. When you use the AWS Management Console to create a non-empty cluster, Amazon ECS creates an AWS CloudFormation stack along with Auto Scaling resources. We want to avoid creating this AWS CloudFormation stack when using the cluster auto scaling feature.

  2. On the navigation bar at the top of the screen, select default region.
