Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

Cool - just got an invite to try out the new EC2 beta from Amazon:
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.

I've got to try this out. Sure sounds promising!

And: I've already been able to access Amazon's S3 - it really seems to work like a charm. If EC2 is as good as S3 - well, then I'm a happy guy!

EC2 and S3 - don't you just love those acronyms!
