- <p>
- This is a workspace service backend that serves as a portal to
- the Amazon <a href="http://aws.amazon.com/ec2">Elastic Compute
- Cloud</a> (EC2).
- </p>
-
- <p>
- It allows clients to boot virtual machines in the Amazon
- cloud using grid protocols and their X509 credentials, first
- passing through the service's authorization and accounting layers.
- </p>
-
- <p>
- The EC2 gateway provides:
- </p>
-
- <div class="uldonotmoveleft">
- <ul>
- <li>
- The ability to run any public Amazon Machine Image (AMI)
- image on Amazon as well
- as whatever AMIs the workspace service's credentials have
- access to privately.
- </li>
- <li>Asynchronous WSN notifications about status (EC2 does not,
- it relies on polling)</li>
- <li>Adjustment of the root account's SSH pubkey authorized_keys
- ("personalization") on the VM</li>
- <li>Running time enforcement</li>
- <li>It makes the public IP address of the VM known to you via
- resource property when the address becomes available (on
- EC2 this is known only after it begins to run).</li>
- <li>Detailed accounting that the authorization layer can use
- to make decisions based on a client's current aggregate
- and reserved usage.
- </li>
- </ul>
