AWS-SDK - How do you spin up an already built instance via Ruby?

AWS-SDK - How do you spin up an already built instance via Ruby?

From:

Hey everyone, long time no see! Forgive me for my absence of late, I've
been a little swamped and haven't been able to make it to the hangouts. Are
there plans for meeting tonight?

So I'm trying to create a simple rails app that has a button to start and
stop the an EC2 server I created, but I'm finding the AWS documentation in
Ruby land to be seriously lacking.

I could find examples of how to spin up generic images, but I'm looking for
a method for spinning up an instance I've created and already added content
to.

If you have any suggestions as to where I could look for an example that
would be awesome.

- Nelson

https://github.com/fog/fog is my go-to lib for any of the cloud services 
like that.

Thanks Corey, now that I think about it I think you introduced this library
to me a while ago. This is working much better. Thanks for the tip!
