Greetings AWS Developers,
Take a read to learn about Amazon EC2’s latest release, the newest developer resources, and to catch the buzz on what the AWS community is building using Amazon Web Services. Also, heads up to start ups and VCs in the Seattle area – AWS and Madrona Ventures would love to host you for an exclusive event. More details below!
Amazon Web Services
Amazon EC2 has introduced NAT addressed instances. Rather than having a single internet routable IP address, NAT addressed instances are allocated two IP addresses: 1) a non-routable RFC 1918 private IP address, and 2) a public IP address. The EC2 network will map traffic between these two addresses. This new addressing allows us to make optimal use of our public IP addresses and will enable additional functionality in future releases. We will not be adding significant new capacity with the (previous) direct addressing scheme, and we will eventually retire the direct addressed instances entirely. If you are an Amazon EC2 beta user, we would encourage you to give them a try.

See the NAT feature guide.
