AWS: Running a docker-image with ECS

After reading some parts of the AWS documentation i decided to launch a docker-image via ECS - or better i will try to launch nginx.

Go to Amazon ECS and click on "Task Definitions":

 Then "Create new Task Definition"
 and then "FARGATE":


After adding a name you have to click "add container" and put in nginx + nginx:latest:

Then go back to  "Task Definitions" and choose "Actions"
 If you select "Run Task", you will end up with this window:


"Cluster: None Available" - so next step is to add a FARGATE cluster:






Running a task definition will be a task in another posting ;-)
