The Amazon Linux 2 AMI is the default image type for Amazon Batch compute environments. We recommend that you update existing Amazon Linux based compute environments to Amazon Linux 2 so that you continue to receive security and other updates.

We will send reminders about this change starting on December 31, 2022. If you use Amazon Batch with managed Amazon Linux based compute environments, you will receive reminders about the Amazon Linux deprecation in email and in your Personal Health Dashboard (PHD).

On March 31, 2023, if you use managed Amazon Linux-based compute environments or custom Amazon Linux-based AMIs, you will receive reminders about this change in email and in your PHD. You can't use the Amazon Batch console or API to create new Amazon Linux based compute environments.

On December 31, 2023, Amazon Batch will end support for existing Amazon Linux based compute environments. The status of existing Amazon Batch Amazon Linux based compute environments will be moved to INVALID.
