What is the recommended way to access EC2 instance?

Four ways to access EC2 instance are mentioned in the lecture:

1. Management Console

2. SSH 

3. EC2 Instance Connect (EIC)

4. AWS Systems Manager

I would like to ask the recommended way to connect to EC2 instance.

There is no recommended method, its personal preference between the 4 options or its dependent on the scenario.

You will run into real-world scenarios where you may only have one choice available to you such as SSH. Some EC2 AMIs will not support all methods of access  and you will eventually start to pickup when you can use one vs the other.
