I’m just about to head downstairs to give my talk to the IEEE International Conference on Web Services, so this will be a really short entry.

First,  Mamoon’s SOA  Testing Blog reports on his use of Amazon EC2. This entire entry is worth reading, but here are a few tidbits:

I love the fact that I can organize a bunch on different images on Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and provision a machine whenever I need to.

“Needless to say, our testing infrastructure is large, complex and expensive. It is going to save us a “crap” load of time & money by storing images on S3 and provisioning the “required” images when needed. I can hear the silence of all those sever fans in our labs now. The noise reduction itself is worth a premium.”

That’s the spirit!
