    Cloud Hosting from Amazon, anyone tried this?

    "To help new AWS customers get started in the cloud, AWS is introducing a new free usage tier. Beginning November 1, new AWS customers will be able to run a free Amazon EC2 Micro Instance for a year, while also leveraging a new free usage tier for Amazon S3, Amazon Elastic Block Store, Amazon Elastic Load Balancing, and AWS data transfer. AWS's free usage tier can be used for anything you want to run in the cloud: launch new applications, test existing applications in the cloud, or simply gain hands-on experience with AWS."

    Haven't tried that free trial, but I host a few FB apps there. Pretty good I must say, no major complaints/issues as of yet. Can't imagine you could accomplish a ton with a 'micro instance', but probably good enough if you just want to try out AWS.

    I've been wondering lately what the difference between Cloud hosting and regular hosting is.
