AWS News: Microsoft Windows on Amazon EC2 Cluster Instances

Run Microsoft Windows on Amazon EC2 Cluster Instances

Starting today you can run Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and Microsoft Windows SQL Server Standard 2008 R2 on Cluster Compute and Cluster GPU instances for Amazon EC2. Cluster Compute Instances provide customers with high CPU capability within a high bandwidth, low latency network for IO intensive computing. Cluster GPU instances allow customers to additionally take advantage of NVidia Tesla GPUs for general purpose GPU (GPGPU) computing using the CUDA or OpenCL programming models. A number of customers with database workloads and applications in areas such as media processing, rendering, and computational finance, have expressed interest in running Microsoft Windows Server on the most powerful Amazon EC2 instances. Starting today, customers can run applications on Microsoft Windows Server across all Amazon EC2 instance types.

Amazon EC2 Running Microsoft Windows Server & SQL Server

Amazon EC2 running Microsoft Windows Server® (available in 2003 R2, 2008 or 2008 R2 editions) is a fast and dependable environment for deploying applications using the Microsoft Web Platform, including ASP.NET, ASP.NET AJAX, Silverlight™, and Internet Information Server (IIS). Amazon EC2 enables you to run any compatible Windows-based solution on AWS’ high-performance, reliable, cost-effective, cloud computing platform. Common Windows use cases include Enterprise Windows-based application hosting, website and web-service hosting, data processing, media transcoding, distributed testing, ASP.NET application hosting, and any other application requiring Windows software. Amazon EC2 also supports the SQL Server® Express and Standard databases (available in 2005, 2008 R1 and 2008 R2 editions), and makes those offerings available to customers on an hourly basis.

Using Amazon EC2 with Windows Server is similar to using Amazon EC2 with any other operating system. Amazon EC2 running Windows Server provides seamless integration with existing Amazon EC2 features like Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), Amazon CloudWatch, Elastic-Load Balancing, and Elastic IPs. Windows instances are available in multiple Availability Zones in all Regions.
