Trying Amazon EC2 - waiting impatiently

09 May 2007

We use Amazon S3 at PRX for images and more importantly all our audio files. We love it.

What we really want to do is use EC2 - look at the gigavox success story on amazon's site - we need almost the same things, and want to implement almost the same arch - except using rails and activemessaging.

The problem is the EC2 closed beta - ugh - we've been waiting, oh so impatiently. In the meantime everyone shuold go get their feet wet with RightScale. You get 10 hours to play with, even without your own EC2 keys.
