Starting a server on Amazon EC2
Before you can spin up a server, you will an account with Amazon Web Services to use its EC2 service. If you don't have one already, you'll need to sign up here.
You'll also need to create an key pair and store it at
~/.ec2/. Then ensure your default security group is configured to allow SSH
access on port 22 and HTTP access on port 80.
Then use Fabric to spin up a server on Amazon EC2. Before it gets started it will ask you to input your private credentials and some configuration options.
