Launch Templates

  • EC2 servers are not bulletproof. Expect them to fail occasionally
  • Remaking EC2 instances should be as fast as possible (automated)
  • This should run with no human intervention
  • Instance setup can be bundled into a Launch Template
  • When a replacement server is needed, stamp a new one out with a Launch Template
  • Also just a nice way to reduce manual setup work
