Product Description

Product Description

This is official Amazon Web Services (AWS) documentation for Amazon Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).

This guide steps you through using the Amazon EC2 web service for the first time. You’ll learn how to sign up for the Amazon EC2 service, launch an instance of a Linux virtual server in the cloud, connect to that instance, and then terminate it. You'll work with the AWS Management Console, an easy-to-use web-based interface. For information on getting started launching a Windows virtual server, see the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud Microsoft Windows User Guide.

Amazon EC2 provides resizable computing capacity—literally, server instances in Amazon's data centers—that you use to build and host your software systems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very fast launch and connection to EC2 July 28 2012

The most helpful part of this guide was termination instruction. It's important to terminate an instance of EC2 rather than run idle since billing is based on hour or partial hour (except in free usage tier). You right click on the instance on the console (the Amazon Web Services console), terminate it and then confirm termination.

Step one, signing up for EC2 was simple. Step two, launching an instance involved choices. For example, this step requires selection of IP addresses to include in the security group. Step three, connecting to the Linux/UNIX instance, is explained based on the type of operating system used by the client (of Amazon Web Services).

This is a quick-start type guide, so it's highly abbreviated. It doesn't cover file storage, monitoring, load balancing or virtual private networking. Instead it has links to additional resources.

I think it covers the key concepts of EC2, I think it is important to know that you will be charged even the AMI is turned off!

It serves as a good beginner's guide to EC2. Would like to see more documentation on architecture design references from Amazon.

It gives an overview of the technology. I just thought that it would be more in-depth on the implementation side of things. It is free so it isn't like there is anything to lose...
