How do you handle running one-off tasks (consoles, migrations etc) on this setup? This is something most of these systems seem to ignore...

We actually have a relay (https://github.com/remind101/empire/tree/master/relay) service that can be run alongside Empire that acts as a proxy to interactive Docker sessions. It's a bit of an experiment right now and something we'd like to solve better in the future, but it allows you to run containers with `emp run <command> -a <app>`.

Interesting! We are in a similar situation to where you were, with a bigish app on Heroku which we are keen to move over to EC2 to join the rest of our infrastructure, definitely keen to see how empire develops

Interesting... except for being limited to Node.js initially (now JVM too), I would think AWS Lambda would be almost ideal for this.
