AWS - EC2 - Windows 2012 VPS - m3.medium - where is the easy CLONE button like VMware?

CLONE - with VMware, I can just right click a server and select CLONE. I have a few options of what data store I want to place it in, but for the most part it is very fast and easy. Where is this hidden in AWS?

A youtube video or how to URL will be enough for me. Thanks experts!

There is no clone option in AWS.  What you can do is to create image AMI from existing instance and then launch new instance from created image. During this process you can change instance type, availability zone etc. Its pretty similar to creating template in VMware and deploying VMs from templates. More info you can find here:
