AWS Batch: The Amazon Web Services Batch service allows clients to run up to hundreds of thousands of computing jobs by batch on Amazon Web Services, provisioning the proper amount and type of compute resources depending on the specific needs of the batch jobs that the client requests.
This service removes the need for the client to purchase, install, and manage batch computing software or clusters of servers in order to run compute jobs, allowing the client to focus on results analysis and solutions.
The Batch service allows the client to outsource planning, scheduling, and execution of their compute workloads across the available services of Amazon Web Services, such as using the EC2 service.
