Listing All Public StarCluster AMIsΒΆ

From time to time StarCluster may provide updated AMIs. These AMIs might simply contain new OS versions or could fix a bug experienced by StarCluster users. Either way, it’s useful to be able to look at the latest available StarCluster AMIs.

To look at a list of all currently available public StarCluster AMIs, including 32bit and 64bit, run the listpublic command:
