Copy an EC2 Instance from One AWS Account to Another

For quite some time, Skeddly has included a “Copy EC2 Instance” action which duplicates an EC2 instance. This allows you to copy an instance between availability zones or VPCs. One of our customers used this action to migrate over 100 instances from t1.micro (EC2-Classic) to t2.micro (inside a VPC).

Recently, this action has been enhanced to allow copying an EC2 instance between AWS accounts.

Some possible use cases:

  • You want to copy and/or move instances between your development and production environments.
  • You are separating your single AWS account into multiple AWS accounts and you want to migrate instances.

This new option is available today.
