AWS CloudFormation has updated support for four services. You can now use the following features with CloudFormation:

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2)

  • Provision an EC2 Dedicated Host, a physical server with EC2 instance capacity fully dedicated to your use. Dedicated Hosts can help you address compliance requirements and reduce costs by allowing you to use your existing server-bound software licenses.
  • Indicate whether EC2 should always associate an instance with an EC2 Dedicated Host. If an instance is associated with a Dedicated Host, then you specify the ID of the Dedicated Host that you want the instance launched on.

Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS)

  • Configure ECS deployments by setting the number of tasks that can be run when updating an ECS service. You can set a lower limit for the number of running and healthy tasks during a deployment, and an upper limit for the number of running tasks during a deployment.
  • New support for additional ECS container definition properties, which describe the configuration of a container.

AWS Lambda

  • Specify a name for a Lambda function.

Amazon GameLift

  • Specify the maximum and minimum number of EC2 instances allowed in a GameLift fleet, which represents one build of your game server that is replicated across many EC2 instances.
