The Amazon Linux 2 AMI with .NET Core has been updated to .NET Core 3.0. This AMI come pre-configured with .NET Core 3.0, Mono 5.18, PowerShell Core 6.2, and the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI)

NET Core 3.0 provides new APIs, adds support for ARM64, and includes a number of performance improvements across the board. PowerShell Core provides a shell and scripting experience similar to Windows, and Mono provides an open source implementation of the .NET Framework. As a result, this AMI enables you to quickly and easily run .NET applications on Linux and save on Windows licensing costs. 

This AMI is provided at no additional cost beyond the cost of using Amazon EC2. You can begin using the AMI directly through EC2 Console in all public regions. Visit the EC2 user guide for step-by-step instructions on launching an EC2 instance.
