Learn to create a customized OS image through an Amazon Machine Image (AMI)
An Amazon Machine Image (AMI) provides the information required to launch an EC2 instance. You can customize an EC2 instance and then save the configuration as a custom AMI for your private or public use. Every EC2 instance launched selecting the customized AMI will contain any software or file that you've previously added.
During this lab, you will setup a webserver EC2 instance starting from a Linux AMI, and then generate a new AMI.
