We have been working on a new update to our general purpose Linux OS. Some highlights as we begin the preview
AL2022 uses the Fedora project as its upstream. It also has SELinux enabled and enforced by default.
It has predictable, two year release cycle, so customers can plan for operating system upgrades as part of their product lifecycles. We will continue to offer 5-yr LTS.
We will have quarterly updates via minor releases and the ability to lock to a specific version of the Amazon Linux package repository giving you control over how and when you absorb updates.
Give it a try (it is available in all our commercial regions) and give us feedback.

One of my favorite things about AWS is that our customers are not shy about letting us know what they want. Often that feedback makes us go in multiple different directions and at other times it illuminates a clear path. The latter are especially delightful.
Customers using ECS and Fargate together are our fastest growing cohort of new container customers. A lot of that cohort is using that combination to build and run web apps and services.
For many of these customers they want to move quickly and focus on the scalability, availability, and performance of these services. We also heard similar feedback from customers using Elastic Beanstalk to run their containerized applications.

Hi folks, meet Bottlerocket, an open-source (Linux-based) operating system purpose built for hosting containers github.com/bottlerocket-o…
Bottlerocket encapsulates lessons that we (and our customers and partners) have learned over the past 5 years or so from running containers at scale. Bottlerocket focuses on security and maintainability and shines when you couple it with a container orchestrator.

This is one of my favorite feature launches ever. Let me tell you why.
One of the best parts of EC2 was that you were no longer concerned how many racks you had in your data center, where they sat, etc. You just launched instances onto capacity that AWS managed.
Modern container orchestration, especially single tenant systems essentially regressed and made that capacity a "thing" by choosing the cluster of machines a first order construct.
