+* AWS-mode
+
+ AWS mode is a major mode for managing Amazon Web Services. It wraps
+ many of the [[http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AWSEC2/latest/CommandLineReference/][command-line utilities]] provided by Amazon to manage
+ their services.
+
+* What’s supported?
+
+ AWS has many services and tools, not all of which are currently
+ supported.
+
+ - Listing EC2 instances, groups, EBS volumes and EBS snapshots.
+ - Logging into EC2 instances with SSH.
+ - Displaying an instance’s console output.
+ - Filtering lists based on various criteria:
+ - Instance security groups.
+ - Volume attachment status.
+ - Snapshot completion status.
+
+* What’s not supported?
+
+ Lots. Launching and terminating instances and volumes, creating and
+ deleting snapshots and volumes, managing groups. No support for ELB or
+ RDS. Probably lots more.
+
+* How do I use it?
+
+ Place =aws.el= in your =load-path=, then add this somewhere in your
+ .emacs:
+
+#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
+ (autoload 'ec2-describe-instances "aws")
+ (autoload 'ec2-describe-volumes "aws")
+ (autoload 'ec2-describe-snapshots "aws")
+ (autoload 'ec2-describe-groups "aws")
+ (autoload 'ec2-get-console "aws")
+#+END_SRC
+
+ At this point, you can hit =M-x ec2-describe-instances RET=, enter
+ an EC2 region, and get a list of instances in that region.
