Re: AWS EC2: Debian 7.4 AMIs now available

Hi brain thanks for your reply.

You say in almost all cases you would recommend esb backed device's. Can I ask why? Iam looking to migrate to instance store from ebs mainly for io reliability issues.

I am having io issues with ebs backed instances the io can be very erratic and cause my sites to have very slow response times from time to time.

I have currently put the code and logs on an ephemeral partition and the sites are much more stable.

I have no reason to keep any code or data that is on the server after reboot or termination.

Opps misread your question. Didn't notice you were referring to an
instance-store AMI. Please ignore my reply. I just tested with the
corresponding us-east-1 AMI and see the same thing. I'm not sure why
it's 1GB. (When I last used instance-store AMIs regularly, most AMIs I
used where built with a 10GB root volume). Please note, that if you do
need a bigger root volume you can always bundle a new AMI based on the
smaller one. However, that said, I recommend in almost all cases for
folks to use instances with EBS backed root volumes.

James, great work, just belatedly noticed we are shipping HVM AMIs!!
