GitHub Action runner images (AMI) for AWS EC2

As part of the RunsOn service, we automatically maintain and publish replicas of the official GitHub runner images ๐Ÿ”— as AWS-formatted images (AMIs).

New images are automatically released within 48h of the official upstream release, and are slightly trimmed to remove outdated software, or (mostly useless) caches.

This means the disk usage is below 30GB, making it sufficiently small to boot in around 40s. The runner binary is also preinstalled in the images.

Supported regions:

  • us-east-1
  • eu-west-1

AMIs can be found using the following search:

  • name: runs-on-ubuntu22-full-x64-*
  • owner 135269210855
