Export EC2 Instances Action

If your Amazon EC2 instance was imported from an external virtual machine environment, AWS provides the ability to export your EC2 instances back out to other virtual machine environments such as Citrix, Microsoft and VMware. Information about this feature can be found at VM Import/Export.

Today, we’re happy to announce a new scheduled action: Export EC2 Instances. Using this new action, you can export your EC2 instances (assuming they were previously imported) to virtual machines images such as Citrix VHD, Microsoft VHD, and VMware VMDK and OVA.

Instances can be discovered by explicitly listing their EC2 instance IDs, or by searching and matching EC2 tag criteria.

Full pricing for this new action can be found on our pricing page at
