Amazon ECS-optimized Amazon Linux 2022 AMI now available in preview

Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) today announced the public preview of the Amazon ECS-optimized Amazon Linux 2022 Amazon Machine Image (AMI). Amazon Linux 2022 (AL2022) is the next generation of Amazon Linux from Amazon Web Services (AWS) that is designed to provide a secure, stable, and high-performance execution environment to develop and run your cloud applications. Starting with AL2022, a new Amazon Linux major version will be available every two years and each major version will be supported for five years. Amazon ECS will publish Amazon ECS-optimized AMIs to support the same 2-year release and 5-year support cycle for every new major Amazon Linux version. The two-year major release cycle helps you keep your software up-to-date while the five year support commitment for each major release gives you the stability you need to manage long project lifecycles.
