Manage Environment Configurations

This functionality allows an organization's administrators to create environment configurations based on a configuration template. The environment configurations allow an organization's users to start and stop environments for planned jobs, and administrators to view, update, and delete configurations.

Currently, the Model Execution template provides these configurations:

  • c5.xlarge
  • m4.4xlarge
  • c4.4xlarge
  • r4.4xlarge
  • p2.xlarge (for GPU templates)
  • p3.2xlarge (for GPU templates)
