Today is a big day for EC2. Many great things happened:

* Amazon EC2 is now in full production. The beta label is gone.
* There’s now an SLA (Service Level Agreement) for EC2.
* Microsoft Windows is now available in beta form on EC2.
* Microsoft SQL Server is now available in beta form on EC2.

I played around with ElasticFox and launched a few Windows instances. The instances work very well and there are AMIs that have built-in support for IIS, ASP.NET and MS SQL. Of course you can customize your own AMI and deploy any software you like.

In case you wonder what the computer properties look like in windows when you run an extra large instance, here is a screenshot for you:)
