Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud Amazon EC2 is a web service that provides secure, resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers. Amazon EC2 offers the broadest and deepest compute platform with choice of processor, storage, networking, operating system, and purchase model. We offer the fastest processors in the cloud and we are the only cloud with Gbps ethernet networking. We have the most powerful GPU instances for machine learning training and graphics workloads, as well as the lowest cost-per-inference instances in the cloud. We would have been unable to handle this surge in volume within our on-premises data center.
Step 1: Create a Linux Instance
I want to migrate an instance running on dedicated hardware a Dedicated Host or Dedicated Instance , or I received a maintenance notification and have a scheduled event for an instance running on dedicated hardware. What should I do? For more information on the two offerings, see Differences between Dedicated Hosts and Dedicated Instances. Dedicated Hosts. What do I need to know when my Amazon EC2 instance is scheduled for retirement? What happens during an EC2 scheduled maintenance event and what preventative actions can I take? Allocating Dedicated Hosts. Modifying Instance Tenancy and Affinity.
Step 2: Connect to your instance
Amazon EC2 resources fall under a few general billing categories. By default, the information is gathered from all Regions and displayed in the output. To run this automation, follow the instructions in Running a simple automation. In addition, terminate all Elastic Beanstalk environments. Note: Deleted, terminated, or released resources can't be recovered. Most AWS customers use only a few of these resources in one or two Regions. To see the Regions that have active resources, check your monthly bill in the Billing and Cost Management console. Note: Reserved Instances are billed as a flat fee each month. The fee is determined by the contract that you agreed to when you activated the Reserved Instance.
Dedicated Hosts can help you address compliance requirements and reduce costs by allowing you to use your existing server-bound software licenses. When you launch instances on a Dedicated Host, the instances run on a physical server that is dedicated for your use. While Dedicated instances also run on dedicated hardware, Dedicated Hosts provide further visibility and control by allowing you to place your instances on a specific, physical server. This enables you to deploy instances using configurations that help address corporate compliance and regulatory requirements. You have the option to launch instances onto a specific Dedicated Host, or you can let Amazon EC2 place the instances automatically. Controlling instance placement allows you to deploy applications to address licensing, corporate compliance, and regulatory requirements. Affinity allows you to specify which Dedicated Host an instance will run on after it has been stopped and restarted. This gives you the confidence that the instance will run on the same physical server even through planned interruptions, helps reduce licensing costs in scenarios that require license affinity for a period of time e.
