Step functions in Container

I work for a large organisation and we have a general policy that we don’t want to have any business logic sitting on a 3rd part platform.
We heavily use AWS and are very container focused and try and ensure that as much business rules live in containers that are managed via a CICD process.

Is it possible and is it recommended to run LocalStack’s Step Functions in a Container for Production workloads? I.E execute the step function in the container.


Hi — Thanks for reaching out!

You should not be using LocalStack in production at all. The purpose of LocalStack is to provide a test environment for local development and continuous integration testing, but we do not recommend to use it as a production service. Step Functions (or in fact any of the LocalStack services) provides no fault tolerance, resilience, etc.
