AWS Fargate is a serverless compute engine for containers. Using it in conjunction with Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), you can run Kill Bill in containers without the need to deploy and manage any server.

While we recommend using our Cloudformation template to deploy a production ready environment, running Kill Bill on ECS with Fargate is a great way to quickly deploy test environments.
