Now you can import on-premises virtual machines to the AWS Cloud and create Linux and Microsoft Windows EC2 instances using the AWS Systems Manager for Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) v1.5.

AWS Systems Manager for SCVMM is available to download and install as an add-in to SCVMM. Once installed, you can import on-premises virtual machines to the AWS Cloud. The add-in leverages AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles to authenticate to Amazon EC2. You can view all EC2 instances by region and availability zone. You can also use the SCVMM interface to perform common maintenance tasks such as creating, restarting, stopping, and removing instances, as well as connecting to an instance using Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).
