The best operating system.
Totally stable.
I use my VPC and works perfectly.

The best choice.

Stable and Reliable

Debian is well known for its stability and reliability, also debian has thousands of packages available and has a very strong community which compensates for paid professional support.

the universal operating system

always used debian in my servers, nothing better than the universal operating system, and a AMI from debian itself :)

integration with VPC

  • May 01, 2013

Yes, it's useful but I got some problems with integrating into VPC and adding NIC to it. So, when you add a NIC in your console, you should modify /etc/network/interfaces to make it up at boot and assign Fixed IP address. I also liked it more if it had some basic tools like 'less' installed.

Ephemeral storage

  • April 15, 2013

Great product but it is not working with EC2's 'ephemeral storage' as expected.

For example, M1 Medium Instance currently comes with 410 GB of storage (aka 'ephemeral storage') which supposed to mount on load in /mnt (or at least be visible/accessible as a disk volume in /dev/xv[db]) ... if you deploy this image you won't see instance storage at all, it just does not mount in any form.


Be aware of a critical limitation!

As noted (by me, heh) on the Debian wiki for the Squeeze marketplace images:

Please note that a Marketplace image volume cannot be attached to another running instance (For example, to repair a broken /etc/fstab, or /etc/network/interfaces). This is a limitation of all Marketplace images, as described here: Official AWS documentation


Easy and straightforward Linux image.

Can't go wrong with this image.

I would of given a 5 star but I had to research what account to login as. FYI... Its "Admin"

Login info is wrong...

  • April 09, 2013

its not root its admin so:
ssh -i <pem_file> admin@<ip_address>

ssh -i <pem_file> root@<ip_address>

like it says in the amazon console.

Now hopefully that's the only bug, because I really like debian.

changed defaults

ssh does not allow to connect as root? why change defaults? original debian allows it.

why create admin user? why not to use root by default, and let me choose first user name.

Very good, but...

Thanks for the Debian GNU/Linux AMI. The only issue I had experienced is that login is required with 'admin', instead of 'root' or 'ec2-user' as mentioned in the Amazon documentation.
