AWS App Runner is a fully managed container application service that makes it easy for developers to run web applications at scale with no prior AWS experience required. Developers provide the source code or container image and AWS App Runner builds and deploys the application. App Runner also scales the underlying infrastructure and load balances traffic using end-to-end encryption.
