Creating an EC2 Instance: Overview

In the next lessons, we will learn about the most important options available to configure EC2 instances, through both the AWS console and the AWS CLI. For better understanding, we’ll see the configuration side by side so we can relate CLI options to their graphical equivalents in the AWS console.

In this chapter, we will learn about the aws ec2 run-instance command. The equivalent within the AWS console is the EC2 “Launch instance” wizard that we can find on the dashboard or in the sidebar under “Instances.”
