AWS EC2 Overview book

A very good introduction book to AWS can be found here:
AWS Book

I would say the title is misleading as this book is more an introduction and overview book then a programming book. However, very good for those IT people new to AWS.

AWS Elastic Cloud set up

Signing, setting up and configuring EC2 cloud is easy. These instructions were very useful:
AWS EC2 Word Press Set up
Now have a Tomcat and MySQL configuration running WordPress blog:
WordPress Blog on AWS
It is so slow but I guess this is normal:
AWS EC2 Micro Instance Slow
Because it is a free micro tier virtual server

Hitachi Data Systems definition of cloud

1. Ability to rapidly provision and de-provision a service. (aka: provisioning)
2. A consumption model where users pay for what they use. (aka: chargeback and showback)
3. The agility to flexibly scale - 'flex up' or 'flex down' - the services without
extensive pre-planning. (aka: elasticity)
4. Secure, direct connection to the cloud without having to recode applications (aka: internet-based)
5. Multi-tenancy capabilitites that segregate and protect the data. (as it says multi-tenancy)

Happen to be I have been talking about 4 of the 5. Did not mention connection to internet as assumed this.

Elasticity - Third cloud attribute

Elasticity refers being able to dynamically provision, migrate, and allocate computing resources to users, departments or customers. It includes the infrastructure to easy set up and ‘tear down’ applications. One of the first areas that customers focus on when moving to the cloud is developer and User Acceptance Testing (UAT) environments. The ability to quick set up a new test environment and then delete it once the testing is done is a cost effective and time saving exercise when done using cloud computing.
