Patching AWS Batch

Managed Compute Environments

Rackspace’s recommended method for securing AWS Batch managed compute environments with current software updates is to create a new compute environment (defaults to the latest Amazon ECS-Optimized AMI, or rebuild a new custom AMI). This new compute environment can then be added to an existing AWS Batch job queue, and the old compute environment removed and deleted.

Unmanaged Compute Environments

For unmanaged compute environments, you manage your own compute resources as an ECS cluster, and should follow the Patching Amazon ECS guidelines to update the ECS cluster.

For more information, see Compute Environments in the AWS Batch User Guide.
