Elastic Container Instance (ECI) is an agile and secure serverless container instance service. You can easily run containers without managing servers. Also you only pay for the resources that have been consumed by the containers. ECI helps you focus on your business applications instead of managing infrastructure.
With ECI, you can focus on business development and innovation without the need to create clusters and manage the infrastructure.
Containers with custom specifications can be created and automatically scaled up within seconds during traffic spikes.
ECI works with Kubernetes clusters through Virtual Kubelet.
ECI has integrated Alibaba Cloud services, such as VPC, Log Service, and CloudMonitor.
Container Infrastructure Management
To run containers, you only need to provide container images, without the need to manage the servers that run the containers.
Run Containers without Managing Servers
You can run containers without the need to manage clusters and maintain the servers that run the containers.
Compute Capability Declaration
To schedule and deploy resources, you only need to declare the compute capability.
Multiple container group specifications are available. You can choose to add containers of different specifications to a container group as needed.
Minimum Container Specification
Containers have a minimum specification of 0.25 vCPU and 0.5 GB memory.
Minimum Container Group Specification
Container groups have a minimum specification of 1 vCPU and 2 GB memory.
Both containers and container groups have a maximum specification of 4 vCPUs and 16 GB memory.
Billing Per-usage and Per-second
This service is billed based on the container instance running time and the amount of resources that the instance has consumed during the running time.
Fees are calculated based on the container instance running time.
Per-second billing is used and the billing cycle is 1 hour.
Quick Auto Scaling
You can start multiple containers and deploy these containers in seconds.
Containers can be created and up-scaled in seconds for demanding workloads.
Custom Auto Scaling Rules
Multiple rules and scaling group specifications are available for auto scaling.
Compatibility with Kubernetes
You can use the Kubernetes API to schedule container instances as pods.
