Amazon EC2 Functionality

Amazon EC2 presents a true virtual computing environment, allowing you to use web service interfaces to launch instances with a variety of operating systems, load them with your custom application environment, manage your network's access permissions, and run your image using as many or few systems as you desire.
To use Amazon EC2, you simply:
  • o Select a pre-configured, templated Amazon Machine Image (AMI) to get up and running immediately. Or create an AMI containing your applications, libraries, data, and associated configuration settings.
  • o Configure security and network access on your Amazon EC2 instance.
  • o Choose which instance type(s) you want, then start, terminate, and monitor as many instances of your AMI as needed, using the web service APIs or the variety of management tools provided.
  • o Determine whether you want to run in multiple locations, utilize static IP endpoints, or attach persistent block storage to your instances.
  • o Pay only for the resources that you actually consume, like instance-hours or data transfer.
