Yes, you can run the Splunk Universal Forwarder on Amazon EC2 instances. The Splunk Universal Forwarder is available for multiple operating systems such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. You will also need to configure the EC2 Security Group to allow the Splunk Indexer to receive data from the Splunk Forwarder on either the default port of TCP 9997 or another user defined TCP port.
