Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) company, announces the general availability of AWS App Runner, a fully managed container application service that makes it easy for customers without any prior containers or infrastructure experience to build, deploy, and run containerized web applications and APIs in just a few clicks. Customers simply provide source code, a container image, or deployment pipeline, and App Runner automatically builds and deploys the web application, load balances traffic, scales on demand, and monitors application health.
Developed with AWS operational, security, and configuration best practices, App Runner eliminates the need for customers to manage infrastructure, servers, or container orchestrators. AWS maintains and manages the infrastructure running customer applications, which means that teams get to production quickly and efficiently. Out of the box, App Runner is built for web scale, so there’s no need to re-platform or re-architect as the business grows. It makes it simpler for customers to rapidly deliver innovative solutions and business value. App Runner is the easiest way for customers to run their web applications (including APIs, backend web services, and websites) on AWS.
AWS App Runner is now generally available, and you can use it in the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo).
You can use AWS App Runner with the AWS console, AWS CLI, or AWS Copilot. To get started, visit our product page.
