Subject: [gentoo-user] Using Amazon Web Services with gentoo
Date: Sun, 24 Mar 2013 20:12:59
1 Does anyone of you use the Amazon EC2 service with gentoo-based instances?
3 I just dig into the provided services there and wonder how to possibly
4 find a useful use case for me.
6 OK, I could rent a High-CPU-instance and emerge libreoffice in a few
7 minutes maybe ;-)
9 But I am interested if any of you use this and what for?
11 Especially: are there gentoo-based AMIs to be recommended?
13 I assume that it won't make much sense to try to setup a mail gateway up
14 there ... moving IP-adresses etc. seem to make that rather inconvenient
15 and a plain VPS somewhere might be better and cheaper?
17 Another case is S3: I research stuff like s3fs and doing encrypted
18 backups via duplicity and even amanda (using S3 as storage). That looks
19 promising for some use cases ...
