 No extra AWS services are required.

 We limit the user to only the actions such as start, stop, or restart. No extra permissions.

 Users will be able to start, stop and restart EC2 instances on demand.

 Users can see the status, start, stop and restart all EC2 instances in multiple AWS regions on a single screen.
