The Amazon Linux 2 AMI with .NET Core has been updated to include Mono, an open source implementation of Microsoft's .NET Framework. The AMI comes pre-configured with .NET Core 2.2 (with Long Term Support), Mono 5.18, PowerShell Core 6.2, and the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI).  

Mono enables .NET Framework applications to run on Linux and can help you save on Windows licensing costs. With the new AMI, you can easily get started with evaluating your applications with Mono.  

This AMI is provided at no additional cost beyond the Amazon EC2 instance hours used and are available in all public regions. You can begin using the AMIs directly through EC2 Console or AWS Marketplace. Visit the EC2 user guide for step-by-step instructions on launching an EC2 instance and to get more resources in our documentation.
