RedHat to be available on Amazon EC2
Came across this article on the topic. I am more and more interested in trying out the EC2 and S3 services from Amazon. Will like to start with non-mission critical infrastructure and DR site for some of the corporate applications. The first step will be to run all our applications on virtual machines. I believe that the EC2 virtualization service is based on Xen. I hope we can run our complete corporate infrastructure on a service like this in the next 5 years.
I met Jeff Barr (blog), Chief Evangelist of Amazon Web Services (blog) at a conference and we had a good chat about their web services strategy.
This is how we will buy infrastructure in the future!
