Amazon and Oracle - More details about OVM on EC2- Reality is now!

Amazon and Oracle did a PR a while ago announcing support of OVM images on the Amazon EC2 platform. Great news!, OVM images are already available on the Amazon EC2 platform. Here are some of the questions that I get asked about this (like a mini FAQ)

There was a PR about 2 months ago from Amazon and Oracle indicating that Amazon now supports OVM. What does this mean?

This means Oracle will publish  (and already has published) images that runs on an "OVM Server infrastructure" that Amazon now provides as a part of it's hosting services. These images are specifically available for deploy on Amazon East is what it currently looks lie it ( meaning the East coast Data Center).  

What is the big advantage of going the OVM route when compared to VMware.?
Very simple answer on this one,  OVM's concept of templates allows applications to be part of a base install. Hence, by default you already have a pre-built Application/Application ready platform compared to vmware. This goes back to the holistic view that Oracle takes to it's virtualization to the very hypervisor centric approach that vmware takes. 

I have created an OVM image locally. Can i now take it and use it on Amazon?.

Currently Oracle produces base AMI images that are runnable on OVM Server infrastructure and Oracle does provide a lot of OVM images (list in the next question).  You can always build on top of those images in Amazon and store them on EBS as long as you pay for it.


What is CURRENTLY available to run on Amazon today as OVM based images?

All these images listed here can run on OVM.
