Newsletter #19Greetings AWS Developers, It’s been a busy month! We have a variety of news and announcements to share with you – everything from additional availability in the Amazon EC2 beta program, to some cool new applications that you and your peers have been building with AWS. Steve Rabuchin
Thanks for all of the interest you’ve been showing in Amazon EC2! We hear about all kinds of creative businesses you’re planning to power with this web service. On that note, we are pleased to offer some additional beta spots. Sign up soon, as space is going fast.
If the beta is already closed when you try to sign up using the “Sign Up For Web Service” button at the URL below, you can leave us your e-mail address and you’ll be the first to hear about it the next time we open up additional availability. Once you’ve left your e-mail address, please also be sure to sign up for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), as these two services are used together. We will only be able to give you access to Amazon EC2 if you have access to Amazon S3 as well.

Attention Windows application developers – be sure to check out the free Amazon SQS transport for the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). Using this add-in, you can build applications that jointly use WCF and Amazon SQS. This makes it easy for WCF applications to pass messages to other systems outside of their network, such as remote browser-based applications, or systems run by other business partners.
