Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a Web service that provides flexible compute capacity in a cloud. Amazon EC2 provides on-demand computing, pay-as-you-go pricing, and integrated storage.
The OpenSolaris OS is available free of charge. With OpenSolaris OS on Amazon EC2, you pay for only the compute capacity you use, starting at 10 cents per hour (bandwidth and storage are charged separately by Amazon). You can start with as little as one small instance (currently 1.7 GB RAM, 1 virtual core, 160 GB storage, 32-bit platform) and scale up and down as your workloads and business demands change.
