Export instance from AWS


In this section, you will practice exporting virtual machines from an EC2 Instance and from an AMI. We will utilize an S3 bucket to store virtual machine files exported from AWS Instances or AMIs.

Exporting is highly beneficial when you aim to deploy a duplicate of your EC2 instance within a virtualized environment on your on-premise system. You can export the majority of instances to various environments such as Citrix Xen, Microsoft Hyper-V, or VMware vSphere.

ℹ️ Note: If you are utilizing VMWare vSphere, there’s an alternative method available. You can use the AWS Connector for vCenter to export EC2 instances.
