(AMIs) available for GitLab CE. These are simple AMIs, that only require a
single command to bootstrap your GitLab instance on AWS.

```
sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure
```

Your instance will run at your set hostname and you can immediately log in
and start using GitLab!

## Powered by an Omnibus Package

The AMI contains the exact same GitLab CE Omnibus package that is released.
This means that upgrading and maintenance is very easy.
