AWS Managed Services Providers (MSP) and AWS Cloud Consultants often face queries regarding running containers in multi-cloud architectures. This is quite relevant, as organizations often want to run workloads that are critical to compliance or security on their on-premised architecture. Or they want to cost-optimize existing data centre investments or leverage existing hardware. In such contexts running a multi-cloud architecture can be a challenge as it means the organization has to manage disparate infrastructures that call for distinctly different skill sets, platform experience and resources.

Container orchestration solutions such as AWS ECS and EKS have become quite popular as they reduce the friction of container adoption and ease operational overheads by dint of their managed service status. Container portability, which allows DevOps teams to focus on application building rather than environmental configuration, is a big advantage. But container orchestration platforms are not alike: even if one is running the same container image on different platforms, configuration, deployment, discovery and communication patterns often differ. So, while container portability is a definite advantage in running applications on the cloud, it nevertheless calls for in-depth understanding of a platform to build and run high-performing and resilient architectures. Fortunately, AWS has a solution: The Anywhere Platform
