Receive Notifications on New Updates


Amazon Deep Learning AMIs have a weekly release cadence for security patches. Release notifications will be sent for these incremental security patches though they may not be included in official release notes.

You can receive notifications whenever a new DLAMI is released. Notifications are published with Amazon SNS using the following topic.


Messages are posted here when a new DLAMI is published. The version, metadata, and regional AMI ID’s of the AMI will be included in the message.

These messages can be received using several different methods. We recommend that you use the following method.
