How to create AMI in Amazon Web-service

An Amazon Machine Image (AMI) is a special type of virtual appliance that is used to instantiate (create) a virtual machine within the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud ("EC2"). It serves as the basic unit of deployment for services delivered using EC2.

Step 1 - Login to AWS account and go to "Service" section and select "EC2".
Step 2 - After that, select "Instance" under which, we can see the created Instance's and then select which instance that we need to add in AMIs. Go to Action => Create Image.

Step 3 - To check AMI Image, go to "Image" tab and select "AMIs", here we can see the newly added AMI, it will take some time to active.

Step 4 - After that, select newly added AMIs and check the details.

Step 5 - While creating a new Instance we can see "My AMIs" option, from which we can select the created AMI from the list.

If you want to delete any AMI, first delete from "AMIs" and then from "Snapshot".

That's it...
