Hey Newbie! I know that you are new in AWS or maybe you are preparing for the AWS Certification examination that’s why you are searching for this topic, I am Aviral Bhardwaj I am writing this solution for you in Step by Step Manner.

If you find any problem with “How to Launch AWS Linux Machine In AWS Console Step By Step” this solution just comments below and I will reply to you within 1-2 hours or if you want to talk/suggest/add a network with me directly you will find one WhatsApp button right below your screen just click there to text me.

Ok First do you have any AWS account if you don’t have an AWS account I really recommended you go through this Guide –> How To Start Free Tier Account in Amazon Webs Services you will defiantly able to get your AWS free their account and you can Launch AWS Linux Machine In AWS Console Step By Step.

So here we go.

How to Launch AWS Linux Machine In AWS Console Step By Step

Step1-Go To AWS Account

Go to Google and Search for AWS Console or you can just click here

Step2- Sign In

Now click on Sign in your AWS account and sign-in by your root or IAM User AWS Account. You can click here also –


Step3-Select EC2 Service

Step5 – AMI Means?

Now you will see 2 points below 1st is Amazon Machine Image it means Amazon already created different software images for us by which we don’t need to install the required OS on that machine we simply got installed the operating system and we can start directly.

Now Second Point is that Free Tier Eligible it means whenever we start our free trial account we will get some free tier where we can use AWS service like EC2, S3, etc in free of charge and learn from these free tier.

Now you can search for any amazon machine image like Linux, ubuntu, and select particular images for your machine.

Step 6-Tech Info

Now after clicking the above selection now you will get the below page now here are some information

  • Family – It means a family that instance belongs like if a machine is used for some general-purpose work or instance used for some machine learning work if you will click on All instance type you can see the type of instances
  • Type – Type means which kind of system you want like t2micro,xlarge it will come with memory optimization and cores
  • vCPUs – it means CPU attached to the system.
  • Memory – it means RAM
  • Instance Storage – It means it comes with Elastic Block Storage where we can attach volume or remove.

Now click on Configure instance details.

Step 7- Configuration Details

Here are a few things we will discuss in another post, For now just click on the storage option right below.

Step 8 -Storage Details

Now you will see the storage option here with others also

  • Volume Type – Amazon EBS is a block-level storage volume that persists independently from the lifetime of an EC2 instance, so you can stop and restart your instance at a later time. Ephemeral instance store volumes are physically attached to the host computer. The data on an instance store persists only during the lifetime of the instance.
  • Device – The available device names for the volume. Depending on the block device driver of the selected AMI’s kernel, the device may be attached with a different name than what you specify. Amazon Linux AMIs create a symbolic link from the renamed device path to the name you specify, but other AMIs may behave differently.

  • Snapshot – A snapshot is a backup of an EC2 volume that’s stored in S3. You can create a new volume using data stored in a snapshot by entering the snapshot’s ID. You can search for public snapshots by typing text in the Snapshot field. Descriptions are case-sensitive.
  • Size – Volume size must be greater than zero or the size of the snapshot used. Provisioned IOPS SSD volumes must be at least 4 GiB in size.
  • Volume Type – General Purpose SSD volumes can burst to 3000 IOPS, and deliver a consistent baseline of 3 IOPS/GiB. Provisioned IOPS SSD volumes can deliver up to 64000 IOPS, and are best for EBS-optimized instances. Magnetic volumes, previously called standard volumes, deliver 100 IOPS on average and can burst to hundreds of IOPS. Learn more about EBS volume types.

Now if you can see the add tags option is there, tags are just for the informational purposes that this particular machine belongs to which person or service. If you want to add tags just and Review launch.

Step 9 -Review & Launch

After review and launch, option-click on the launch option like below

Step 10 -EC2 Launched

Now you can click on launch and launch your instance is launched now. Go to EC2 Dashboard using this link.AWS Linux Machine Now you can see below there is one running instance, click on that, and you cans ee your running instances there.

Now in this tutorial of How to Launch AWS Linux Machine In AWS Console Step By Step we learned How to Launch AWS Linux if you want to follow this tutorial you must have an AWS Free Tier Account if you don’t have click on the below post and you will learn how we can get AWS Free Tier account.

Now after launching the machine in Linux we will see how we can connect our machine and start Linux commands. For that, you can follow the below link
