Hello, Any guide on how to setup prefect for production which has best practices and scalability in mind. I have an ec2 instance where i will run the polling agent. Currently i am running the polling agent inside a docker in that server for testing purposes. We are confused between airflow and prefect. I am pitching in for prefect, i just can't find many differences.

Hi Laraib, I'll get you started with some resources that may be useful to you for getting set up: • How to build a Prefect 2.0 PoC on AWS (you may be particularly interested in the article showing how to deploy a Prefect 2.0 agent to an EC2 instance) • Prefect Recipes (full of resources that you can use to get started with Prefect. I'd recommend checking out the recipes for AWS and ECS)
Feel free to reach out if you have any follow up questions!
