Activating EC2 Ubuntu 16

Start with the Ubuntu AMI locator. Use the menu at the bottom of the page. Narrow and filter your choices  to the right version. Chose an AMI with:

  • Zone: The zone closest to your users and customers. We use eu-west 1 for Norwegian sites.
  • Name: Xenial
  • Version: 16.04 LTS

  • Instance Type: hvm:ebs-ssd
  • AMI-ID: ami-07174474 was the most recent in EU-WEST in November 2016. Check for a newer in your region!

Log into your account on AWS. Then double click on the link of the AMI-ID you have chosen. Then this AMI will be added to your account.
