Interesting question, I haven't worked with Amazon Lambda until now but from what I've read about it, my understanding was Lambda can only take pure functions and run them.
It would be interesting if EC2 instances can run docker virtualizations in them.

You can run dockerized x server apps on ec2 but there are two ways you can get gui.
