    In order to help new amazon AWS customers get started in the cloud, AWS is introducing a free usage tier. New AWS customers will be able to run a free Amazon EC2 Micro Instance for a year, while also leveraging a 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.

    Below are the highlights of AWS?s free usage tiers:
    750 hours of Amazon EC2 Linux Micro Instance usage (613 MB of memory and 32-bit and 64-bit platform support) ? enough hours to run continuously each month
    750 hours of an Elastic Load Balancer plus 15 GB data processing
    10 GB of Amazon Elastic Block Storage, plus 1 million I/Os, 1 GB of snapshot storage, 10,000 snapshot Get Requests and 1,000 snapshot Put Requests
    5 GB of Amazon S3 standard storage, 20,000 Get Requests, and 2,000 Put Requests
    30 GB per of internet data transfer (15 GB of data transfer ?in? and 15 GB of data transfer ?out? across all services except Amazon CloudFront)
    25 Amazon SimpleDB Machine Hours and 1 GB of Storage
    100,000 Requests of Amazon Simple Queue Service
    100,000 Requests, 100,000 HTTP notifications and 1,000 email notifications for Amazon Simple Notification Service
    10 Amazon Cloudwatch alarms

    Since this is not actually a download, I have moved this thread to the Blackhat Lounge.

    webmadter could this be used for zennoposter? I don't mind using a larger ec2 package
    instead of the free micro. I'm just wondering if zenno is compatible with ec2 and if it is a good
    cheaper alternative to normal VPS setups? I only need it for ZP really and some other tools.

    cheers

    No I'm not sure it will fit your needs.
    Home PC or good VPS are ways to go.

    Amazon charges bandwidth like a water in the desert. Don't put your bhtools there.

    I pretty sure you can run windows fine on it. See here:
    Code:
    http://aws.amazon.com/windows/
    At first it looked really cheap when I was looking at the 'on demand' service.
    They have a pricing calculator as well but I can't make a lot of sense of it yet:
    Code:
    http://calculator.s3.amazonaws.com/calc5.html
    I entered in 1 windows instance running 24hrs a day and it says it would cost
    $84/month, that's without adjusting the data transfer fields etc

    Ok I will have to continue looking around for a good VPS that meet my needs, I think
    I would get cleaned out if I ran ZP at 100 threads + though!

    EDIT: Just found another thread about the amazon VPS here:
    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/white-hat-seo/358229-free-vps-year-amazon.html
    There is also more about it here with a link to a magic submitter webinar
    all about using MS on the ec2 VPS so I will look into that as well:
