Easy to setup, Many unsupported instance types

The marketplace AMI is only behind by a patch release so that's pretty good. Setup is easy with the marketplace. My major complain would be the lack of supported instance types. The vendor recommended instance type isn't even available for me to create anymore.

Cost makes no sense and the AMI is lagging behind severly

You can pay $65/mo per instance and install yourself on another AMI ( I suggest using a G2 instance then docker along with ) or pay $92.31-$1,915.2 per month (depending on the instance type) for the exact same software. Of course, I assumed the software costs would be similar (and covered by my AWS credits; why they are not) so I found out the hard way.

Also, the AMI doesn't provide G2 support (GPU/NVENC support) and lags behind the release schedule so there's even more reason to use a standard instance or docker-capable AMI with GPU support and their monthly license. Still, be careful because whey they say "per instance", they don't mean "per machine" and they will bill you multiple times if their system "phones home" more than once for any reason. Found that out the hard way also.

g2 instances not available

Why g2 instances are not available? Is there any particular reason for it? We really have the need to utilize NVENC transcoding capability of g2.
