Amazon Linux is a distribution supported and updated by Amazon Web Services, and made available for use with Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances.

  • Integrated & Extensible. The Amazon Linux AMI includes packages and configurations that provide tight integration with Amazon Web Services, many AWS API tools and CloudInit are pre-installed. CloudInit allows passing instance configuration actions to instances at launch time via the EC2 user-data fields, enabling remote configuration of Amazon EC2 instances.
  • Secure Configuration. The configuration of the Amazon Linux AMI enhances security by focusing on two main security goals: limiting access and reducing software vulnerabilities. The Amazon Linux AMI limits remote access capabilities by using SSH key pairs and by disabling remote root login. Additionally, the Amazon Linux AMI reduces the number of non-critical packages which are installed on your instance, limiting your exposure to potential security vulnerabilities. Security updates rated "critical" or "important" are automatically applied on the initial boot of the AMI.
  • Package Repository Access. The Amazon Linux AMI is designed to be used in conjunction with online package repositories hosted in each Amazon EC2 region. Hosting repositories in each region allows updates to be deployed quickly and without any data transfer charges.

Run containers at scale. Amazon EC2 Container Service makes it easy to manage Docker containers at scale. It provides a centralized service that includes programmatic access to the complete state of the containers and Amazon EC2 instances in the cluster, schedules containers in the proper location, and uses familiar Amazon EC2 features like security groups, Amazon EBS volumes, and IAM roles.

Storage. WANdisco Fusion - 200TB is the only solution that seamlessly replicates up to 200 terabytes of transactional data with Amazon S3 without downtime or disruption. WANdisco's patented replication technology transfers data to S3 as it changes in your on-premises local and NFS mounted file systems running on EMC Isilon, NetApp or other Linux based servers, Hadoop clusters running on any HDFS or HCFS compatible storage (Cloudera (CDH), Hortonworks (HDP), MapR, IBM Big Insights, Pivotal (PHD), Oracle BDA) as well as other cloud environments with guaranteed consistency. S3 and on-premises environments operate in parallel during replication without downtime or disruption. Continuous active transactional replication eliminates WAN traffic spikes and allows high volume data transfer to keep up with on-premises ingest rates. Recovery is automatic after planned or unplanned network or hardware outages in either on-premises or AWS environments. Simple setup in both on-premises and S3 environments has you up and running in minutes.
