Hi. Thank you for the great service, guys,
First of all, I'd like to tell that I had to wake up at 4 am in order to ask a bunch of questions. We like ECS very and are thinking of moving our architecture to Microsevices.
Question: Auto Scaling Group
It can spin up and shut down EC2 instances. Will ASG be able to spin up and shut down containers (TaskDefinitions) dynamicaly? When?

Currently, we are using ELB+ASG+EC2. It works great. We have a dozen of instances which automatically gets more than a dozen on high load. But we would like to migrate our VPC from spinning AMI's to spinning containers.
Please, recommend a strategy, step-by-step guide, or document to migrate from AMI's to ECS Docker Containers as smooth as possible. Is there one already?

Oh, you mean AWS blog. It would be good if ECS team would have their own blog. :)

Exactly! This is what people want.
For example Joyent is launching this kind of service - Triton. No instances, no metrics, no sizes. "Hey, robot. Here is my container. Autoscale it."

This sounds great! Please, blog somewhere about it. A simple recipe would be sufficient.
Thank you for the AMA session. You are great, guys.
