Ubuntu for Amazon EC2

December 18, 2008

I find this fascinating; the Ubuntu team is working on a version of Ubuntu Server that’s specialized to Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (aka EC2). Need to quickly set up web and email servers?  No problem; just a few commands and you’re up and running.  I’ve occasionally toyed with the idea of setting up my own email and web servers, but generally regarded it as being too much hassle. With an offering like this Canonical is making it relatively easy to get going, and with Amazon hosting the servers it probably wouldn’t be all that expensive.
