Deploying a NodeJs and MongoDB application to Amazon Web Services

I want to deploy a nodejs appliacation on aws which uses webrtc live video streaming, and mongodb. I tried using docker with two separate images of mongodb and the app itself. It worked fine on my local machine but I can’t figure out how to get the two docker images up to aws. Any tips? alternatives of using docker? should I create an ubuntu instance, ssh in and run the application there?
