Atlantic Crossing

Amazon launched a new EC2 region located in Europe yesterday: "With the exception of support for Microsoft Windows and for Amazon DevPay (both of which will be ready before too long), every feature of EC2 is available in the new region".

As noted here many times
I would love to move our auction site into the cloud and get away from the need to own and manage the iron it runs on and to be able to respond dynamically to peak loads like the rush we got when it was featured on BBC One.

This looks like the way to do it, but I can't see us getting the time to kick its tyres until March 2009.

(I also wanna play with when and if I get five minutes free.)
