Working with Amazon EC2 Instances for CodeDeploy

An Amazon EC2 instance is a virtual computing environment that you create and configure using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud. Amazon EC2 provides scalable computing capacity in the AWS Cloud. You can use Amazon EC2 to launch as many or as few virtual servers as you need for your CodeDeploy deployments.

For more information about Amazon EC2, see Amazon EC2 Getting Started Guide.

The instructions in this section show you how to create and configure Amazon EC2 instances for use in your CodeDeploy deployments.
