Container image type - Amazon Elastic Container Service

Container image type

The time that it takes a container to start up varies, based on the underlying container image. For example, a fatter image (full versions of Debian, Ubuntu, and Amazon1/2) might take longer to start up because there are a more services that run in the containers compared to their respective slim versions (Debian-slim, Ubuntu-slim, and Amazon-slim) or smaller base images (Alpine).
