could not be connected after boot

I could not connect the instance after instance launched.
the same security group setting in Amazon AMI works.
Besides, nothing to test further.

Fast, easy, sane Debian deployment to EC2

So glad the Debian project maintains this AMI. Working great for our provisioning of new machines as we build out our infrastructure.

Locked in

  • By A.B.

Despite being OSS "free" software, something is misconfigured or Amazon is lacking an option to "un-lock-down" the instance.

With instances created with this AMI, you will not be able to mount the root volumes onto other Instances, which is crucial in times of recovery and emergency.

Do not use.

Works as Advertised

While not a professional sysadmin, I am a keen hobbyist and user of Debian. This image worked without fault for me. Thanks.

so far so good

So far this has been a high-quality Debian 8 image. The only issue with it I've seen so far is the following error while setting it up:

/usr/sbin/grub-probe: warning: the entry `hd0,msdos1' is invalid. Ignoring it. Please correct or delete your

And Googling around didn't immediately turn up what to do about it.

Otherwise would have been a perfect experience out-of-the-box.

Very good and comfortable

Very good and comfortable distributive. I am using it for high loaded servers. PHP-FPM 5.6 performance is better than 5.5 and compare to HHVM.

Found: HVM Support

  • By Brad Spry
  • on 06/11/2015

I was concerned after seeing reviews complaining about a lack of HVM support. But after a cursory search, I found Debian's wiki page, which clearly contains regional HVM AMI IDS:

I Love Debian, and Debian loves me! Sappy!

Works great~

Finally found the best Debian AMI for HVM support...
It would be best choice for many startups..
Sure, I'll recommend it

  • By Esteban Monge

I use Debian for years... I love that people upload to AWS.

Debian give a lot of benefits:
-Lots of software
-Free and constant updates
-Lots of documentation
-Fast and smooth
-Community supported

Good work for Debian team. Please Amazon put in official AMIs.

AWS Debian Linux

This service is a great way to get a basic Linux system up and running and serving functionality on the Internet. With the AWS services, I'm able to move rapidly through design to a fully deployed system, with confidence that the services will function as needed throughout the lifetime of the project.
