Changing virtualization type on AWS

Hi guys. I am trying to deploy the QIIME2 AMI on AWS, but due to its virtualization type (PV) I am unable to deploy it most of European zones (and London in particular) as new types of instances no longer support it. Has anyone faced this issue and could write a short guide on how to overcome this issue?

Hi @aidas - we have an open issue to start publishing EBS-backed EC2 instances, but we haven’t gotten around to it just yet (no ETA at present). The official Q2 images are just a base Ubuntu image with the QIIME 2 native linux installation on top of it, so you should be able to just allocate a linux machine and install yourself. We will update this thread whenever these types of EC2 AMIs become available. Thanks! :t_rex:
