CROC Cloud Updates

Introducing Launch Templates and Related API Methods

1 minute

Launch templates streamline the launch of instances of the same type and minimize the risk of configuration errors when deploying them.

CROC Cloud now features launch templates. They enable automatic scaling, which is coming soon. As for now, launch template operations are only available via API.

To avoid setting the same parameters every time at each step in the instance wizard, you can save them in a launch template. For each launch template, you can create its versions with other instance parameters. You can create up to 50 launch templates in each project and up to 100 versions of each template.

Now, the method  RunInstances allows you to create an instance from a specified launch template using the new LaunchTemplate parameter. To learn about the new API methods for templates and their versions, read the documentation.

You can use Terraform, the c2-ec2 utility, or customized Python libraries for boto3 and botocore to easily manage the launch templates via API. You can see a sample Terraform code for creating an instance here. Instructions for installing the libraries can be found here.

Launch templates will be available in the web interface in the upcoming updates of CROC Cloud.
