Amazon EC2 CloudFormation template snippets

Amazon EC2 provides scalable compute capacity in the AWS Cloud. You can use Amazon EC2 to launch as many or as few virtual servers as you need, configure security and networking, and manage storage. These virtual servers, known as instances, can run a variety of operating systems and applications, and can be customized to meet your specific requirements. Amazon EC2 enables you to scale up or down to handle changes in requirements or spikes in usage.

You can define and provision Amazon EC2 instances as part of your infrastructure using AWS CloudFormation templates. Templates make it easy to manage and automate the deployment of Amazon EC2 resources in a repeatable and consistent manner.

The following example template snippets describe AWS CloudFormation resources or components for Amazon EC2. These snippets are designed to be integrated into a template and are not intended to be run independently.
