Amazon EC2 Run Command now works with any instance or virtual machine outside of AWS, including VMs running in your own data centers or in other clouds. If you have hybrid environments that span on-premises to AWS, you now have a consistent experience to extend your scripts across locations. Through a single interface, you can now run scripts for repetitive tasks for both Windows and Linux operating systems running within Amazon EC2, VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, and many other platforms.   With Amazon EC2 Run Command, you can automate administrative tasks such as executing Linux Shell scripts and commands, running Windows PowerShell commands, installing software or patches, and more across instances, irrespective of location.
