Launch Templates is a new capability that enables a new way to templatize your launch requests. Launch Templates streamline and simplify the launch process for Auto Scaling, Spot Fleet, Spot, and On-Demand instances.

Launch Templates reduce the number of steps required to create an instance by capturing all launch parameters within one resource. This makes the process easy to reproduce. Also, through support for Auto Scaling, Spot Fleet, Spot and On-Demand instances, Launch Templates make it easier to implement standards and best practices, helping you to better manage costs, improve your security posture, and minimize the risk of deployment errors.

This capability is available at no additional cost in AWS commercial regions except AWS China (Beijing) region. To learn more, read the Launch Templates documentation.
