Nitesh shows you how to
move an AMI from one AWS region
to another


I want to launch a copy of an AWS instance to serve clients in other geographical regions, and to create redundancy in my application. How can I create an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) and copy it to another region?

Start by creating an AMI; you can create an AMI using the Linux operating system or the Windows operating system.

To copy an AMI from one AWS region to another AWS region on the same account, follow the instructions at Copying an AMI Using the Console or Command Line.

When the copy operation is finished, the AMI is available for use under My AMIs when you launch an instance in that region.
