AWS CloudShell now has built-in support for Docker, making it easier than ever for developers to quickly spin up containers and run commands inside them directly from their CloudShell environment. With this new integration, CloudShell users can initialize Docker containers on demand and connect to them to prototype or deploy Docker based resources via AWS CDK Toolkit. By providing instant access to Docker without needing to install or configure it, CloudShell aims to simplify container-based development workflows for AWS CloudShell users. This feature is now available in the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Paris), and South America (São Paulo). To learn more, see CloudShell Docker Documentation.

AWS CloudShell is a browser-based shell that makes it easy to securely manage, explore, and interact with your AWS resources. CloudShell is pre-authenticated with your console credentials. Common development tools are pre-installed so no local installation or configuration is required. With CloudShell you can run scripts with the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), define infrastructure with the AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK), experiment with AWS service APIs using the AWS SDKs, or use a range of other tools to increase your productivity.
