  1. Cloud hosting, bit pricey, can be configured ram / disk / cpu / etc. Works out twice as expensive as Linode. Arguably has a more "enterprise" featureset.
  2. Interesting article comparing Rackspace and AWS performance when applying high frequency trading strategies against 10 years of archive data. Rackspace io kicks ass, CPU slightly ahead.
  3. CDN plugin for Magento that supports Rackspace and Amazon AWS CloudFront. Pushes images on demand, claims to be simple to integrate, and is free.
  4. On premises cloud computing platform, with an open source angle. Don't fully understand it.
  5. A platform to manage cloud computing resources, deployments, and so on. Essentially a simplified front end for AWS as far as I can make out.
  6. Scalable PHP PaaS service. Based on the concept of "boxes", which handle 2 simultaneous requests each, and can scale up and down dynamically. So 12 concurrent requests equals 6 boxes. Strange, but potentially cost effective for traffic peaks.
  7. PHP PaaS provider based in Ireland, acquired by Engine Yard.
  8. PHP cloud hosting. Very slick architecture. Custom managed EC2 nodes deployed behind varnish caches and nginx load balancers. Fairly reasonably priced.
  9. Ruby, Node.js and Clojure application hosting. Pricing is based on web and background workers. One node free.
  10. How to get custom RSA SSH keypairs into EC2. There is one region missing from this post.
  11. An interface to create jobs on Amazon Mechanical Turk (jobs are called HIT, Human Intelligence Tasks). Provides tools to enhance the functionality of mturk. Unsure of pricing model.
  12. Very helpful thread that explains a simple one-line fix to curl problems with the PHP AWS SDK on Ubuntu 8.04 (slice1).
  13. Handy list of the ami codes to launch an ubuntu server instance on amazon's EC2.
  14. This site allows you to use Amazon's Mechanical Turk API to create HITs via their web interface. It is more powerful than Amazon's own interface because it uses the API. Small accounts are free, higher volume accounts cost money.
