Amazon EC2 AMI Images and tools
Summary: Create official Debian images and tools for the Amazon EC2 cloud-computing environment and other cloud-computing frameworks
- some experience with virtualization (qemu, vmware, etc) and Amazon EC2
- some scripting language experience (Python?) to create special tools
Description: Many fields of are currently increasingly using on-demand cloud computing services like Amazon EC2 or Eucalyptus. We would like to make using Debian on those services as painless as possible.
Ubuntu has inaugurated the field by extending the ubuntu-specific vmbuilder for ec2 functionalities. The purpose of this project is to adapt, rewrite or extend those tools as necessary for the purposes of Debian.
