Announcing three new Amazon EC2 features

Posted on: Mar 7, 2012

We are announcing three new features that will make it even easier for you to use Amazon EC2 for your application and development needs.

  • Customers can now launch 64-bit Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) on m1.small and c1.medium instances. This capability allows you to scale across micro, standard, high CPU and high memory EC2 instances with a single 64-bit AMI.
  • We are launching the thirteenth Amazon EC2 instance type, m1.medium. m1.medium instances are ideal for many applications that require a reasonable amount of CPU and memory, but do not require all the resources of an m1.large instance. This new instance type supports both 32 and 64-bit AMIs.
  • Customers can now log into their Linux instances directly from within the Amazon EC2 management console without the need to install additional software clients
