This is partly referring to this issue #674

To put things in context, let's say I want to use Cuckoo in AWS. I'd create one Cuckoo instance and one Windows instance. From what I understood in the issue above, the Windows instance has to be treated as a physical machine. However, the only way I know do to this, is to use FOG (by looking at physical.conf) which requires a third instance as the FOG server.

So I thought it'd be pretty nice to have a feature that allows to control EC2 instances, like restoring a VM using snapshot by leveraging the AWS API, similarly to the way Cuckoo controls VMs. Would this be considered? Else, is there a workaround?

Thanks!

This has been discussed before (e.g., in #674). For various reasons we don't recommend such cloud practices and (partially) therefore it's not officially supported right now.
For now our advice is simply to get a dedicated machine, it keeps life easy when working with hypervisors/VMs etc.

If you're interested to develop the module to work with AWS, in particular the new i3.metal thing, we could consider this. Otherwise for now I'll be closing this issue as we don't have much interest in implementing it (Cuckoo works just fine on a bare metal machine anyway). Thanks!
