Amazon EC2

EC2 - Apache

EC2 – Apache,
originally uploaded by John Resig.

So I finally made it in to the new Amazon Elastic Computing Cluster service – and I can’t wait to really dig into it. I ran through the demo and it worked like a charm. The tutorial and command line tools are excellent – I had no problems getting started and understanding what was going on.

If there’s anything that underscores how cool this service is, it’s this command:
ec2-authorize web -p 80

That, remotely, enables port 80 on all the instances within the ‘web’ group. I’m not even a sysadmin and this makes my excited. Although, maybe that’s why I’m not a sysadmin, heh.
