Is there a direct equivalent of ECS Agent in Prefect Orion?

I see, thank you for sharing!

Seems like I'd have to stick with 1.0 for now then. Unfortunately, it wouldn't make sense for us cost-wise to run the agent on ec2 and have it execute flows on the same instance, because we are running ML training flows. Would prefer to have a small ecs instance running the agent and have it launch large (+gpu) ECS tasks for training.

there is explanation how you can still get all the cost benefits of Fargate using EKS on Fargate

Yes, but our team also has similar doubts regarding kubernetes as Julian, we're pretty hesitant to jump over towards adopting kubernetes since we have a lot of existing Infra & app code set up for ecs. Doesn't help that there's no one in our team that has experience with kubernetes.

that makes sense, totally understandable - I'm planning on releasing a tutorial showing how you can still use ECS Fargate with Prefect 2.0 - if you want to get notified, subscribe to this tag on Discourse https://discourse.prefect.io/tag/ecs
