Amazon Linux Ami

July 30, 2017

  • Based on CentOS/Redhat and you can use Redhat/Centos repositories
  • Has better integration and has EC2 management tools pre-installed
  • There may be issues at times due to dependency issues
  • One potential issue is you can't run Amazon Linux outside of EC2
  • Local/developer builds may be on their own RHEL/Centos but there may be slight differences
