I have arrived at love Amazon's EC2 service and I am searching for such like that supports a chance to save a running Home windows server image and begin new instances from this.
Anybody are conscious of any hosting/cloud companies that may dothis?
I've got a note from Amazon . com towards the effect that that they'll be supporting Home windows Server on EC2 this fall.
Appears like coping with certification issues could be nightmarish for that host.
I can not observe how certification could be different compared to a co-lo provider.
AT&T's Synaptic Hosting enables this, though I am sure you'll pay with the nose, as it is all "enterprise" an' shit.
@Mark Brackett - A co-lo facility is not running illegal installs of Home windows on their server hardware.
GoGrid as introduced to give the feature this fall. Take a look at http://world wide web.flexihost.co.united kingdom and http://world wide web.elastichosts.com (in the United kingdom) in addition to http://world wide web.appnexus.com.
I've heard that world wide web.rightscale.com (it's type of a pleasant interface to EC2 hosting) will support Home windows sometime later on.
With many different manual fine-tuning you are able to already run Home windows on EC2 using virtualization in the Linux virtual machine: http://world wide web.howtoforge.com/amazon . com_elastic_compute_cloud_qemu
I've got a narrow your search of cloud website hosts on my small website: http://hotware.wordpress.com/2008/07/25/a-short-cloud-hosting-link-list/
