How to use CloudFormation to create an ECS cluster

0 votes

I would like to use a CloudFormation template to create my ECS cluster instead of spinning it up by hand, but I have yet to find a way. Is this simply not implemented yet, where you can create an ECS cluster as a resource in your CloudFormation template?

Looks like there is nothing special about ECS that you should not be able to do via Cloud Formation.

Take a look at this ECS quick stack cf template: https://s3.amazonaws.com/amazon-ecs-cloudformation/Amazon_ECS_Quickstart.template

Checkout: http://www.cloudtp.com/2015/02/04/getting-started-ec2-container-service-ecs/

The key in the cloud formation template is really the AMI id + ECS_CLUSTER definition in /etc/ecs/ecs.config. If you get that right it's basically a normal EC2 CF build.

Hope this helped!!
