Amazon EC2 Reaches Out To Windows Developers


Amazon EC2 is upping the ante with Microsoft’s competitive cloud platform, Azure, by matching its free offer of up to 750 hours per month, for up to a year, of developer time for Windows Server 2003 R2, 2008 and 2008 R2 editions. As part of its AWS Free Usage Tier, customers can select from a range of pre-configured Amazon Machine Images with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, and once running, connect via Microsoft Remote Desktop Client to build, migrate, test, and deploy their web applications on AWS in minutes.

Previously only available to Linux server users, the program addition is open to new AWS customers and to those who are already participating in the Free Usage Tier, and is available in all AWS Regions with the exception of GovCloud, blogs Amazon’s Jeff Barr. "The micro instances provide a small amount of consistent processing power and the ability to burst to a higher level of usage from time to time. You can use this instance to learn about Amazon EC2, support a development and test environment, build an AWS application, or host a web site (or all of the above). We’ve fine-tuned the micro instances to make them even better at running Microsoft Windows Server."
