Blox is a new open source project launched by AWS that allow developers to write custom scheduling policies for Amazon ECS. Blox includes a service that consumes the event stream coming from a Docker cluster. It uses it to track the state of the cluster makes the state accessible via a set of REST APIs. Blox also includes a daemon scheduler that runs one copy of a task on each container instance in a cluster. In technical session, Julien will explain how the architecture works and of course he'll share and go through a full demo, from launching a cluster to scheduling containers with the daemon scheduler.
