Amazon EC2 Container Service vs Quay.io: What are the differences?
Amazon EC2 Container Service: Container management service that supports Docker containers. Amazon EC2 Container Service lets you launch and stop container-enabled applications with simple API calls, allows you to query the state of your cluster from a centralized service, and gives you access to many familiar Amazon EC2 features like security groups, EBS volumes and IAM roles; Quay.io: Secure hosting for private Docker repositories. Simply upload your Dockerfile (and any additional files it needs) and we'll build your Dockerfile into an image and push it to your repository.
Amazon EC2 Container Service belongs to "Containers as a Service" category of the tech stack, while Quay.io can be primarily classified under "Docker Registry".
Some of the features offered by Amazon EC2 Container Service are:
