Amazon Web Services (AWS) makes another announcement on the launch of a fully managed service. It is designed to make it simpler for developers to implement containerized web applications and APIs quickly.
The AWS publicizes AWS App Runner to be the simplest way to build and run containerized web applications across the entire platform. The new service gives users the benefit of a fully managed container-native.
The words from a blog post said that the new service has no orchestrators to configure, build pipelines to set up, load balancers that can be optimized, or TLS certifications to rotate.
The service App Runner will allow users to bring existing containers or use the integrated container build service to go directly from the code repository to deployed application. AWS also explained that the service could connect to a GitHub repository to provide a Git push workflow that deploys changes easily.
“If you want to turn your code into an App Runner service without having to build or push the container, you can use a GitHub repo directly. The build service provides base containers for runtimes such as Python and Node.js so you can do less security patching,” the blog, penned by Justin Garrison, Senior Developer Advocate at AWS, explained.
App Runner works on the latest release of AWS Copilot to containerize applications and automate other AWS services, like Amazon DynamoDB.
Users do not need knowledge about server configuration, networking, load balancing, or deployment pipelines to use App Runner. It also scales up resources in reply to user’s traffic and easily scales down to their configured number of provisioned container instances to eliminate cold starts and consistently low latency. It gives execution billing for every second.
“Use App Runner to build and run API services, backend web services, websites, and more,” the company declared.
