Amazon Elastic Container Registry

Amazon Elastic Container Registry (Amazon ECR) is a fully-managed Docker container registry that helps developers to store, manage, and deploy Docker container images, and it is secure, scalable, and reliable. Amazon ECR is integrated with Amazon ECS, which allows AWS customers to store, run, and manage container images for applications running on Amazon ECS.

  • Amazon ECR enables private Docker repositories with resource-based permissions using AWS IAM so that specific users or Amazon EC2 instances can access repositories and images.
  • Amazon ECR hosts clients images in a highly available and scalable architecture, allowing them to deploy containers for their applications.
  • Amazon ECR transfers container images over HTTPS and automatically encrypts those images at rest.
