Which Amazon EC2 instance is best for my CentOS or Fedora or Ubuntu or FreeBSD or Windows enterprise selection?

Many companies seems like having Amazon cloude, kind of deep trust because it never fall down (advantage), disadvantage (its not friendly, and expensive, as you pay per hour the whole OS). But anyway sometime you have to use it, so use this or if you have better one as enterprise (post me here, we can keep the list alive):

CentOS 5.5: ami-066d9c6f , Kernel ID: aki-4e7d9527  (side note: i still today do not find a correct CentOS version there, its a full of mess out there, and i do not understand why in the hell Amazon, do not put Linux guys and put one standard image so that it works nicely, rather then getting confused for no reason).

Few notes on this (mostly confusing in begin):

1) When you add a instance, it start within a minute

2) If you need a remote access, make sure you do not lose the “*.pem” file. I lost it once and never get it up and runing again.

3) If you click on the instance and you will see there is a button “connnect” that gives you the ssh command and how to connect

4) Make sure you have “Security Groups” assigned and open

– Those are the firewalls, for public traffic (you) to amazon server

5) Make sure you need a “Elastic IP”, which is idiot name but its used for “Public ip” normally we call  it “WAN”
