Failure to launch Amazon EC2 non free instances
I need to launch a Amazon EC2 instance, in particular a GPU accelerated one. I already tried with free tiers using
instances and everything is fine. When I try to select a non free one such as
g2.2xlarge I get this error
You have requested more instances (1) than your current instance limit of 0 allows for the specified instance type. Please visit http://aws.amazon.com/contact-us/ec2-request to request an adjustment to this limit.
(Service: AmazonEC2; Status Code: 400; Error Code: InstanceLimitExceeded; Request ID: 4ebf71ee-e927-42c2-8377-697a3a6cfd4b)
I'm trying to use a machine with Deep Learning AMI Ubuntu Version (but I also tried with other ones). I get this error even if I'm not running any other instance and according to the documentation the limit for these one is 5 at a time. I have also tried to select different regions (my country is not among the choices) but it doesn't seem to change the result.
My only guess about this issue is that somehow I'm registered as a free user and I'm not allowed to use the priced services, but I'm not so sure about that.
Edit: I have a credit card on file on Amazon (they require it to register) and they should charge me from that.
Am I missing something?
