EC2 for Windows now available

Amazon’s EC2 is now available for Windows – squeaking in just before PDC was to kick off. This is quite exciting as it allows you to scale out and try something at a very low cost on Windows.

If you want to manage your EC2 environment, you can use the Firefox add-in called Elasticfox; there is also a C# library which wraps EC2’s web service API making them easier to consume from .NET.

Amazon is also going to release more features (fairly soon) across the board – load balancing, auto scaling, monitoring, etc.

It will be interesting to see the competitor offerings from Microsoft – should get public details at PDC.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
