Improved AMI Discovery Experience on AWS

We are improving the AMI discovery experience by bringing customers who are interested in using Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) to AWS Marketplace. On AWS Marketplace, you can search for AMIs (with search suggestions), view product reviews submitted by other customers, subscribe and launch AMIs and manage your subscriptions. All Marketplace products have been verified for quality and pre-configured for 1-Click launch capability on AWS infrastructure.

What about community provided AMIs that don’t meet Marketplace’s listing requirements?

You can continue to find AMIs shared by other developers by searching within the Community tab of the Instance Launch Wizard in the EC2 Console. For instructions on how to search and launch publicly shared AMIs from the EC2 Community Catalog, see this page.

How can I continue to share AMIs without listing them on the Marketplace?

You can continue to share your AMIs publicly via the EC2 Community Catalog. To create and share your AMIs publicly, please follow the instructions on the following page: Click Here
