We believe in securely connecting everything by enabling users to build private networks within the internet that only they can see. We provide zero trust IT/OT networking as a service.
Do you ever want to SSH into your 'Docker host'? But the host is an 'instance' and you don't know which 'instance' you are running on. Locally you could use host.docker.internal But that doesn't work in AWS (Amazon Web Services) ECS (Elastic Container Service).
With Remote.It installed in the AWS instance, you can query the metadata from your browser. No AWS credentials are required. Authenticate using Remote.It.
This will also work in a Kubernetes cluster. Run a Remote.It agent per 'instance' (node) and you could enable an HTTP service to access the AWS metadata locally on your desktop.
Option 1: Install as a Docker container. https://hub.docker.com/r/remoteit/remoteit-agent
Option 2: Install via our one-line install code https://www.remote.it/getting-started/aws-set-up
If you want a specific API then add it to the end of the URL /latest/meta-data/hostname
