Join Brian Eiler for an in-depth discussion in this video Deploy an EC2 instance from an AMI, part of Amazon Web Services: Implementing and Troubleshooting IaaS Products.
- [Instructor] In our last demonstration, we copied an A-M-I or an AMI over to a different region so that we could deploy an instance from one of those AMIs. Currently, I'm in the North Virginia region. I'm going to change over to the location where we copied that AMI which was US West Oregon. Changing over to this region, I can see we have a number of different instances out here. We can also click over here under AMIs and I can see that my route tables AMI has been successfully copied and is available for us to deploy from.
Now if I go back to my instances and I choose launch an instance, I can see a number of different image types out here. These are the ones from Amazon. If I filter the list to my AMIs, I can see that I have two different AMIs. We had one that was a test and then we have the one that we just copied which is the route tables. Now in order to deploy from it, I'm just going to click select and it will ask me what type of machine do we want to use. In this particular case, we'll keep it at the T2.micro and it's going to use the EBS storage.
I can check configure instance details next. I can choose all the different options including things like the network configuration. We can also add storage to this. Remember that when we built the AMI, we did not specify additional storage, but it's something that you can definitely do during the launch of an instance. From here, we can also add things like tags which give us the ability to organize our instances so that we can sort things and filter for them. Lastly, we can modify the security groups. So for instance if I needed to open up things like ICMP or other traffic, we could certainly do so at this time.
When we're ready, we click review and launch and it says everything looks good so we'll go ahead and launch. At this point, I need to choose a particular key pair. And if you recall from our EC2 discussions, that is the way that we're actually going to authenticate into the instance so I have a number of different key pairs. Let's just pick this better work and I check the option that says I acknowledge that I still have access to this particular file which is on my hard drive and I can click launch instance.
It will go about the process and it's going to create an instance from that AMI.
