Amazon Machine Image (AMI) 12.2 64bit

Published by James Tan
Based on openSUSE 12.2 64-bit x86

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is a web service that provides scalable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easy.

An Amazon Machine Image (AMI) is a specially configured virtual machine image for use within Amazon EC2. It serves as the basic unit of deployment for services delivered using EC2.

This AMI is a plain openSUSE 12.2 JeOS image, with some helpful utilities like zypper and htop included. It is also released as a public AMI in all Amazon regions so you can run it there directly. The AMI IDs for each region is listed in the table below. You can search in Amazon’s web console for the latest IDs if this list becomes outdated.

The scripts and tools used to create and manage these AMIs are available on Github.

Region Region ID AMI ID
  Asia Pacific (Tokyo) ap-northeast-1    ami-fa63dcfb
  Asia Pacific (Singapore)     ap-southeast-1    ami-30acec62
  EU West (Ireland) eu-west-1    ami-d50101a1
  S. America (Sao Paulo) sa-east-1    ami-8c0ad391
  US East (Virginia) us-east-1    ami-46f7482f
  US West (N. California) us-west-1    ami-ebc2e5ae
  US West (Oregon) us-west-2    ami-62cd4452

There’s also a 32-bit version.

Note (Dec 17 2012): The Virtualization:Cloud:EC2 project has moved to Cloud:EC2.
