Amazon is preparing for a massive reboot of EC2 instances across the globe to remedy a security flaw.
The web services giant reduces the entry-level price for renting infrastructure from its EC2 cloud.
AWS is now saying that you can do private cloud by default in EC2. The upshot: It may be bit harder for rivals to pitch servers, storage and networking gear with AWS lurking in the background.
Amazon Web Services has launched a high memory cluster instance designed to be suited to memory intensive analytics.
Amazon's North Virginia region is experiencing problems, with problems occurring in the cloud's Elastic Compute, Relational Database Service and Elastic Beanstalk technologies.Problems began at 8.
AWS is now certified for SAP Business All-in-One for Linux and Windows and SAP Rapid Deployment and Business Objects software for Windows Server 2008 R2.
Amazon Web Services has released a tool that lets people create a recipe for a Virtual Private Cloud from a single template file.The upgrade, which lets developers use a CloudFormation template file to describe a set of EC2 resources and their supporting infrastructure, cuts the steps it takes to design and launch a private cloud system on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, the company announced in a blog post on Wednesday.
The AWS Marketplace lets companies buy and provision software to EC2 servers with a single click, and also provides an app store-style place for software makers to sell their products to AWS customers
Recent research indicates that Amazon's EC2 cloud is made up of almost half-a-million servers--each of them running a variation of Red Hat Linux for their base operating system.
Red Hat announced certification of SAP applications on its Enterprise Linux 6 and also use of those SAP apps on Linux in Amazon's EC2 cloud.
Servers owned by Amazon were used as a staging area for the hack that crippled Sony's online entertainment network, according to a source quoted by Bloomberg.Hackers rented computers from Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) under an alias and used them to launch the PlayStation Network (PSN) attack, Bloomberg reported on Saturday morning.
Amazon Web Services has announced that Suse Linux Enterprise Server can be run on cluster compute and cluster GPU virtual machines in its elastic compute cloud.Suse Linux Enterprise Server became available for Amazon Web Services' (AWS) cluster instances on Wednesday, AWS announced.
Amazon Web Services has released a tool to simplify the importing of VMware virtual machines into its infrastructure.The Amazon EC2 VM Import Connector, which Amazon Web Services (AWS) released on Thursday, is a virtual appliance (vApp) plug-in for VMware's virtual machine management suite VMware VCentre, which sits on top of VMware's virtualisation platform vSphere.
Anyone wondering how the commercial cloud computing business model is working should look no further than Amazon Web Services.Randy Bias just published estimates that AWS is pulling in about $220 million annually for its Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) offerings.
Amazon Web Services Evangelist Jeff Barr has been at it again, using Twitter to announce the release of his employer's latest offering.Amazon has come a long way since its days as a big book shop, and is increasingly making a name for itself as an exemplar of commodity computation.First we had the Simple Storage Service, S3. Little more than a big disk in the Cloud, it offered an affordable means by which anyone could make large amounts of data available for download by large numbers of people. Second Life client downloads come from S3, as do Talis podcasts. Several of my colleagues use S3 for backing up their laptops (I use Mozy myself, but that's another story).Then we got the Elastic Compute Cloud, EC2. This commoditised availability of virtual computers, making it relatively straightforward for those experiencing rapid growth - or needing short-term access to additional computing power for some other reason - to call upon additional computers as required, configure them as needed, use them for as long as necessary, and then throw them back into the pool when done.Unsurprisingly, given Amazon's e-Commerce heritage, a payment service came next. This essentially opened Amazon's own e-Commerce capabilities to third party developers, and allowed them to build it into their own applications. Although we knew that this would come, I should admit here that the pundits at Talis (including myself) were sure that Amazon's third web service would be the one they actually only announced today. Given our interest in data and their interest in e-Commerce, it's perhaps not surprising that we prioritised them differently.Next in the path, a Service Level Agreement. Essential, if Amazon are to move beyond the early adopters and actually see mass market numbers of mainstream enterprises rely upon their web services.Which brings us to today, and the unveiling of Amazon SimpleDB. It had to come, and now it has, offering; “a web service for running queries on structured data in real time. This service works in close conjunction with Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), collectively providing the ability to store, process and query data sets in the cloud.”It's great to see, and in some ways the conceptual use of Cloud-based 'content' and 'metadata' is similar to our own ideas around the Talis Platform... although with very different emphasis and realisation.And yes, I know I missed SQS and Mechanical Turk, and various other Amazon web services from my story...Story originally posted on the Nodalities blogTechnorati Tags: Amazon Web Services, AWS, EC2, Jeff Barr, web services, S3, SimpleDB, Talis, Talis Platform
Red Hat has launched the private beta of Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) service with a public beta due in the before the end of the year.Under the partnership, Red Hat will make Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and its features--the network management service, technical support and certified applications--on Amazon's EC2 service.
