IAM roles for Amazon EC2 instances allows an EC2 instance make AWS service calls on our behalf. This allows us to have temporary credentials rather than hard coding them on to the instance if we want to make calls to AWS services. In this article we will see how to create an IAM role.

IAM policies are how one applies permissions to users, groups and roles. Managed IAM policies are standalone policies that can be attached to multiple identities (users, groups, and roles) and when the policy changes, it immediately applies to the attached identities. In this article we see how to create a managed IAM policy.

An announcement regarding the Pygoscelis Papua Linux AMIs that will start in September 2016:

The rolling wave for Pygoscelis Papua Linux AMIs will be changed to three months, so it will keep the two most recent builds. When the 2016-09 release comes, it and the 2016-07 release will remain while the rest will be retired. The retired AMIs will remain on us-east-1 for archival purposes. If you wish to copy any of the old images, our articles HowTo: Copy EC2 EBS AMIs Between Accounts and HowTo: Move an EC2 EBS AMI From One Region to Another may be of use.
