I'm writing an app for a client on an ec2 instance, and now it's time to set up a prod ec2 instance under his AWS account. Can I somehow transfer the ec2 instance which is running under my account to his account? Or I would have to create a prod environment from scratch.

You can create an AMI of the current EC2 instance, and then share the AMI with the other account.

To create an AMI:

  • Choose the EC2 instance
  • Click on the actions dropdown and choose “create image”

And to know how to share that AMI, check out this AWS documentation on Sharing AMIs.
