Red Hat Enterprise Linux on demand
Released for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud service
Open source company Red Hat has made its Enterprise Linux OS available on demand and is releasing it for the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) service.
According to a company press release, the move is part of Red Hat's "automation" strategy. This is supposed to simplify how applications run and are managed. Currently, a private beta of Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon EC2 is now available, with a public beta slated to be made available before the end of the year.
It will cost US$19 per month per user and $0.21, $0.53 or $0.94 for every computer hour used on the EC2 service. And those hours do add up quickly.
