Familiar with Debian? This is a great minimal build.

Our business has been running on Linux since 2001. Our infrastructure is isolated into many small Debian VPS. In many ways, I suppose we may be a perfect candidate for hosting on AWS.

I used this image to familiarize myself with Debian on EC2. If you are familiar with installing Debian from debootstrap (or any other minimal install method), then installing the specific packages you need for that install, you will be very pleased with this minimal AMI. I appreciate not having to uninstall unnecessary packages.

FWIW, This AMI does not use LVM. Some may prefer LVM for boot encryption, snapshots, RAID over multiple EBS volumes, volume expansion, etc. If you need LVM, you must manually migrate this boot volume to a new EBS volume with LVM.
