AWS Systems Manager Managed Instances

A managed instance is any machine configured for AWS Systems Manager. You can configure Amazon EC2 instances or on-premises machines in a hybrid environment as managed instances. Systems Manager supports various distributions of Linux, including Raspberry Pi devices, and Microsoft Windows.

In the console, any machine prefixed with "mi-" is an on-premises server or virtual machine (VM) managed instance.
