Amazon Tries Hand at Virtual Appliances:
"Amazon Machine Images or AMI [is] a packaged environment that includes all the necessary bits
to set up and boot Amazon EC2 instances. The company launched their Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) - Amazon's
hosted, on demand virtual datacenter based on the Xen technology - with
hopes of creating demand for a pay-per-use model of virtual machines. .. Amazon is now asking its EC2 community members to share their AMIs with other Amazon Web Services developers." Amazon keeps a listing of public AMI's
with RSS feed
. There's even a Windows AMI running under QEMU under Xen (whew!). XML manifests are required for each AMI. 6:42:50 PM
I resumed blogging for my new company today, with comments on operating systems and virtuailzation. Enjoy. 5:48:35 PM
