I have an EC2 instance running. It was launched out of a 32-bit AMI.
Now I want to scale up to 'Extra Large' size. Is there a way to do it? Through the admin console, it is not allowed.
If at all I do it, is it of any use to run 32-bit applications in an Extra large instance? How do I migrate a 32 bit instance to a 64-bit instance?
In my case it is a Linux instance, so I can take a snapshot of the existing instance, create a volume, and attach the same in the 64 bit instance and use the applications(jboss) from there, without data loss. Even then, a few application will have to be reinstalled again as 64-bit versions.
Please suggest efficient ways.
