I'm using an Ubuntu machine with Amazon's EC2 service. I've taken an EBS-backed AMI of this computer.
If my current instance shuts down, when I launch an instance from the saved AMI, will I definitely maintain SSH access for the new machine, using the key pair that I use for my current instance?
That is, the ssh program should be reliably running and the key pair will remain, and I don't need to make any changes in the AWS console except for launching the new instance?
The AWS docs do not address this specifically though I believe it will be the case.
