Amazon Announces Consolidation of Windows AMIs on EC2

Amazon EC2 no longer differentiates between Amazon EC2 running Windows and Amazon EC2 running Windows with Authentication Services. New and existing Windows instances can now run Authentication Services, such as LDAP and Kerberos, at no additional charge. Additionally, any currently running Windows with Authentication Services instances are now charged the same price as Windows instances.

Existing Windows AMIs will be removed starting October 15. If you need the current version of a Windows AMI, please rebundle your own copy of it.

For more information about Windows instances, go to the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud Developer Guide or Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.
