Segment.com on cost savings using DynamoDB, autoscaling and ECS
great post.

1. DynamoDB hot shards were a big problem -- and it is terrible that diagnosing this requires a ticket to AWS support! This heat map should be a built-in feature.

2. ECS auto-scaling gets a solid thumbs-up.

3. Switching from ELB to ALB lets them set ports dynamically for individual ECS Docker containers, and then pack as many containers as will fit on a giant EC2 instance.

4. Terraform modules to automate setup and maintainance of ECS, autoscaling groups, and ALBs
