It contains the AWS CLI, related tools, and is based on the cimg/deploy image.

This image can be used with the CircleCI

In the above example, the CircleCI AWS Docker image is used for the primary container. You can now use all of the tools pre-installed in this image in this job.
This image is published on a monthly basis. Each month, we'll update the main tools to newer versions as they are available.
This image has the following tagging scheme:
The tag will be
YYYY.MM.I where YYYY is the 4 digit year, MM is the 2 digit month, and I is the nth release of that month.
The last piece there typically will only change when we need to patch an image for that month.
