Mounting Amazon S3 as a File System in Amazon EC2

We have a new article in our Developer Connection!

In Mounting Amazon S3 as a File System in Amazon EC2, AWS developer Bill Donahue shows how to use the S3InfiniDisk product to mount Amazon S3 as a file system in Amazon EC2. Using S3InfiniDisk, data written to a mounted Linux file system is written to S3, giving EC2 a permanent storage system.

The article covers starting an instance, installing the Java Development Kit, installing and configuring S3InfiniDisk, and more.
