Amazon EC2 Console is announcing that its new and improved launch experience is now available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. This experience gives console users an easier and faster way to launch an instance. The new design provides a single page layout allowing users to view settings in a single location. With this update, AWS GovCloud (US) customers do not need to navigate between multiple steps to ensure their configuration is correct. It also introduces a summary panel which provides an overview and improves page navigation.

The console is now introducing a new inline Amazon Machine Image (AMI) that provides a simple way of selecting an operating system and version. It displays recently used AMIs enabling easy selection. This update also introduces a simple view, which helps launch an instance faster, and an advanced view for additional configuration. Customers have an option to switch between this new version and the previous experience.

This new Amazon EC2 console experience is available in all AWS regions and is now also available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. To learn more, please refer to the documentation here.
