Now customers can use EC2 Image Builder to build custom images from their on-premise images in a single console-based experience. This capability makes it easier for customers to incorporate on-premise images stored in S3 (in OVA, VHD, VHDX, VMDK and raw format) in EC2 Image Builder pipelines. Those customers can now leverage existing EC2 Image Builder capabilities, such as process automation, build security and image distribution, to build images via an intuitive console.

You can easily bring in on-premise images in S3 as your base image in the image build pipeline and use EC2 Image Builder workflows to create and distribute compliant output images. You can also quickly evaluate the image import errors in the EC2 Image Builder Console and reduce the debugging efforts in the image build process.

Get started from the EC2 Image Builder Console, CLI, API, Cloud Formation, or CDK, and learn more in the EC2 Image Builder documentation. You can find information about on-premise image support on EC2 Image Builder in the feature documentation page

You can also learn about upcoming EC2 Image Builder features on the public roadmap.
