Amazon Web Services Introduces AWS Batch Support for EC2 Launch Templates

Posted on: Nov 12, 2018

AWS Batch now supports EC2 Launch Templates, allowing you to build customized templates for your compute resources, and enabling Batch to scale instances with those requirements. You can specify your EC2 Launch Template to add storage volumes, specify network interfaces, or configure permissions, among other capabilities. EC2 Launch Templates reduce the number of steps required to configure Batch environments by capturing launch parameters within one resource.

To get started with EC2 Launch Templates on AWS Batch, create a template through the AWS CLI, SDKs, or through the EC2 web console. You can then use that template when creating an AWS Batch compute environment. For more information about AWS Batch, please visit here.
