Starting a Cloud VM

  • Many services provide a service for renting VMs
  • Amazon has a service called EC2 (Elastic Cloud Compute)
  • You can rent VMs of different sizes and with different software
  • Configure storage, networking, security and more
  • You can connect to the server via SSH (Secure SHell)
  • The EC2 instance is now a VM you own
  • You can install software, run your own code. Pretty much do anything
