Docker for AWS works fully within AWS free tier, giving you the ability to try it out at no cost (just create a 1-manager, 1-worker swarm). Installation takes a few minutes, and will give you a fully functioning swarm, ready to deploy and scale Dockerized vApp. Enhancements added during the private beta include:
-All container logs are automatically sent to AWS CloudWatch for later inspection and analysis.
-Built-in diagnose tool lets you submit a swarm-wide diagnostic dump to Docker so that they can help diagnose and troubleshoot a misbehaving Docker for AWS swarm.
-Configurable ephemeral instance root disk size and type lets you choose faster SSDs and bigger disks to hold all your images, containers and volumes.
-Improved upgrade stability so that you can confidently upgrade your Docker for AWS to the latest version.
The improvements added during the private beta complement the initial features Docker for AWS launched with earlier this year:
-Simple access and management using EC2 keypairs.
-Quick and secure deployment of websites thanks to auto-provisioned and auto-configured load balancers.
-Secure and easy-to-manage EC2 network and instance configuration.
