  2. Subscribe to an Anaconda AMI product. (If you’ve already done this, skip to step 3.)

    2. On the product’s page, click Continue to Subscribe.

    3. Review and accept the terms. The subscription should take a few minutes to take effect.

  3. From the AWS Management Console, in the search field, enter “AWS Marketplace Subscriptions” and select the result.


  4. On the Manage subscriptions page, find the Anaconda product you wish to launch and click Launch new instance.
