Running Windows Server in Amazon EC2   Leave a comment

The following URL lists a step by step process to run a Windows Server Instance in EC2 http://blogs.iis.net/bills/archive/2009/01/13/how-to-run-windows-amp-iis-in-the-cloud-on-amazon-ec2-in-15-mins.aspx

Though it started with a Free Account sign up, you need to enter Credit Card (CC) information to set-up an Instance.

As it was interesting to see how easy it may be to get my own AMI for windows server to be ran on EC2, I found this link

like many other links, this also starts with an interesting portion on Windows Server and EC2, but whil I was reading down realized that the AMI creation was mainly for Linux Virtual machines. Someone asked in the comments section about using this same on a Windows Server image, and well its just a ‘trail try’ as the author responds.

Since I have no CC info to share with Amazon, I’m waiting for someone to list the steps to run our own windows AMI on EC2.
