Question

Can we push artifacts to Amazon ECR for faster pulls, instead of using Codefresh’s Docker repository?

Answer

Yes, we use ECR with some of our customers. The downside is that it does not support multiple image names per repository; they can only vary by tag. Anytime you want to deploy a new microservice, you must provision a new ECR repo, which makes things slightly more cumbersome albeit ultimately more secure. It requires a one-time ECR configuration via a Terraform module (deployed with Atlantis) per new microservice.
