Docker announced that they are open-sourcing the code for the beta implementations of the Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Microsoft Azure Container Instances (ACI) Compose integrations. Further to creating an open community for developing Compose specification, this is the first time Docker has made Compose available for the cloud.
In his blog post, Chris Crone, senior engineering manager at Docker, mentioned that developers can now take their local Compose projects to the cloud. Providing details of the integration, he clarified that when implementing these integrations, the existing CLI commands were not impacted. Furthermore, the architecture would make it easy to add backends and provide SDKs in popular languages.
