OpenSolaris Now Available on Amazon EC2 in Europe!

We are very happy to broaden the availability of the latest OpenSolaris 2008.11 Base AMI on Amazon EC2 in the European Region. This AMI is public and does not need registration.

Following are the details of this new AMI:

OpenSolaris 2008.11 32-bit AMI:

ami-6c1c3418 aki-661c3412 / ari-601c3414

To run this AMI in Europe, change the following environment variables before launching the AMI:

EC2_URL="https://eu-west-1.ec2.amazonaws.com"
LOCATION="EU"

The other env variables remain the same.

NOTE:  a unique <your-keypair-name> must be generated for each region before launching an AMI.(Use ec2-add-keypair <name> > keypairfile after setting the above env variables).

Comments:

What about security updates for OpenSolaris 2008.11? Where do we get them and how can they be applied for production use?

I second the question of the previous commentor.
I'd like to add:
Will you offer AMIs which are optimized for SERVER usage? I don't get why you packaged the whole window server stuff into the AMIs.

We are really considering switching our whole production env to OpenSolaris (from debian) but it would be nice to get details about "shell only configs/security upgrades/upgrades in general and package control".

debian/ubuntu folks love apt-get :-)
