(CMP203) New! Amazon EC2 Enhancements for the Enterprise


Published on

This week we are announcing two new enhancements for those of you who are running and managing workloads on EC2, Dedicated Hosts and Run Command.  Dedicated Hosts enable you to save money, by leveraging your investments in your own server-bound licenses including Windows Server, SQL Server, and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, in EC2.  Using Run Command, you can remotely invoke pre-defined actions or ad-hoc scripts on groups of instances all from the EC2 Console or API, this way you can easily manage configuration change on your instances. In this session we will take a look at these two new capabilities which enhance the EC2 experience.
