AWS is aware of recently disclosed research regarding side-channel analysis of speculative execution on modern computer processors (CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5753, and CVE-2017-5754). This is a vulnerability that has existed for more than 20 years in modern processor architectures like Intel, AMD, and ARM across servers, desktops, and mobile devices.

This is the Official CentOS 7 x86_64 HVM image that has been built with a minimal profile, suitable for use in HVM instance types only. The image contains just enough packages to run within AWS, bring up an SSH Server and allow users to login. Please note that this is the default CentOS-7 image that we recommend everyone uses.

AWS nudging users toward HVM instance type Aug 28, 2015 cloud - How do I know what Ubuntu AMI to launch on EC2

May 07, 2014

I wanted to fetch the latest ami id for AWS Linux machine while creating an ec2 instance for an autoscaling architecture. I was trying the aws cli to get the images types, but it would print out a lot of information if I used the describe-images command.. My requirement was to get only the image id, so that I could use it to create a launch configuration or launch an instance with the latest Amazon Machine Images: HVM or PV? Under the covers, AWS runs the Xen hypervisor on the bare metal of its servers. Xen has the capability to virtualize in two ways: Hardware Virtual Machine (HVM) or paravirtualization (PV).. Paravirtualization is a lightweight form of virtualization which differs from HVM in that it doesn't require any virtualization extensions from the host CPU.If your host server doesn't have Intel VT or AMD
