Product Description

Product Description

This is official Amazon Web Services (AWS) documentation for Amazon Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).

This guide explains the infrastructure provided by the Amazon EC2 web service, and steps you through how to configure and manage your virtual servers using the AWS Management Console (an easy-to-use graphical interface), the Amazon EC2 API, or web tools and utilities.

Amazon EC2 provides resizable computing capacity—literally, server instances in Amazon's data centers—that you use to build and host your software systems.

5.0 out of 5 stars EC2 20 Mar 2014
By Nelson

The guide is really useful on my everyday work. EC2 is a great product by Amazon and I doubt there is anything similar in the market.
It's very easy to use and very powerful.

5.0 out of 5 stars hidden technology 6 Jan 2013
By Ron Mahon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Before reading this book, I was baffled. Understandably, Amazon invented a lot of the technology that's in use. , so I guess they have the right to make up names for processes and procedures. A new user would not have this confusion. I've been around computers for 40 years, and ran networks consisting of hundreds of miles of cable.

That industry also made up their own names, but they were very similar to existing technology.

After reading this book, I felt all the fog lifting from my brain. most people recognize Amazon is the world's greatest retailer. many don't realize how powerful their worldwide redundant network is. Never wanting their store to be unavailable. A built data centers all over the world. Each one capable of serving their service area alone.

Having all this extra capacity, the next logical step was to share it with other people. I have been using their S3 storage for around five years and have never had a problem. Most people don't appreciate how they're able to backup gigabytes of data in a very short time.

In my opinion. Not only are they the world's greatest retailer, the one of the best technology companies also.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good overview 25 Mar 2014
By Bill Baran - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good overview of EC2 features and detailed usage examples for each including how to use their web UI, command-line tools, or their REST api.

Cons: Very repetitive. Makes it easy to reference later, but a lot of page flipping if you're trying to get the whole picture.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for the Little Guy 20 Feb 2014
By Douglas W. Skinner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm sure for those who are already familiar with concepts relating to cloud computing, this resource is a very helpful way to establish an account and set things up with Amazon. But for the little guy, working at home wishing to conserve his modest funds, it is virtually useless. Critical to folks like us is an assessment of typical costs. When the article talks about economizing it appears to mention it in a corporate context--which likely far exceeds the ability of an individual's understanding of economy. Also, it fails to provide any help to those who are intrigued with the idea of computing in the cloud but who just want to get set up to do it without having to understanding a lot of esoteric concepts as "Store-Backed Windows, AMI" and so forth. (One thing that should always raise a suspicious flag when it comes to clarity is the book's profligate use of acronyms. Sources like these should be required to bear the heading, "Beware of Acronyms! All who enter here are without hope".) What should be provided to ordinary users are some basic plans with step by step examples a description of sample sessions and their actual costs. The sessions should encompass several scenarios that allow the user to see what an expensive session looks like and a not so expensive one looks like. After attempting to read this document, I am left exactly where I was before reading it: is Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) a realistic option for me.

The book is good and the examples are updated. I would like more technical explanations about the pictures and about PVGRUB partitioned.
