Quick way to tag the name of the instance so that it shows up on aws console.
gem install ec2_name
Set up a ~/.br-cloud.yml that holds the aws credentials. File should look like this:
$ cat ~/.br-cloud.yml --- :aws_access_key_id: XXXX :aws_secret_access_key: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX $
If the script is being on an ec2 instance.
If you are running it locally and want to test it.
INSTANCE_ID=i-XXXX ec2_name [NAME]
