Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) has several exciting announcements regarding our partnership with IBM. Effective immediately, you can now bring your own IBM software to Amazon EC2. IBM is also providing several AMIs at no additional fee beyond Amazon EC2 charges for developers building commercial IBM-based applications. Later this year, AWS will make available Amazon EC2 running IBM AMIs, which will enable all customers the ability to use an IBM environment at the same pay-as-you go pricing model you are already familiar with. The initial list of IBM environments that will be available includes: IBM DB2, IBM Informix, IBM WebSphere sMash, IBM Lotus Web Content Management, and IBM WebSphere Portal Server.
