AWS Batch vs AWS Step Functions: What are the differences?
What is AWS Batch? Fully Managed Batch Processing at Any Scale. It enables developers, scientists, and engineers to easily and efficiently run hundreds of thousands of batch computing jobs on AWS. It dynamically provisions the optimal quantity and type of compute resources (e.g., CPU or memory optimized instances) based on the volume and specific resource requirements of the batch jobs submitted.
What is AWS Step Functions? Build Distributed Applications Using Visual Workflows. AWS Step Functions makes it easy to coordinate the components of distributed applications and microservices using visual workflows. Building applications from individual components that each perform a discrete function lets you scale and change applications quickly.
AWS Batch and AWS Step Functions are primarily classified as "Serverless / Task Processing" and "Cloud Task Management" tools respectively.
