we already wrote about new version of Ec2Studio that was released not far ago. S3 browser functionality was introduced there. We received good experience working with Amazon S3 with the help of Amazon .Net SDK and we decided to write overview what is Amazon S3, how you can use it and why it can be useful for C# developer.

Take a look at our new article "Amazon S3 from C# developer point of view".

We have very popular article "How to host ASP.NET application at Amazon EC2", that is describing steps necessary to deploy your ASP.NET application to Amazon EC2.

But you will have to spend some time to perform all steps that are necessary to deploy it. And we tried to make this task easy. This is why we created special "ASP.Net Deployment Assistant" functionality that is available in our new version of EC2Studio.

Want to see it in action? Read new article "ASP.NET Hosting in Amazon EC2 for 30 minutes" from Pavel Klimov that shows how easy it is now to deploy your web application to Amazon EC2.

Why cloud is so popular now? Why it can be useful for you? My colleague Pavel Klimov wrote one more article "Genetic Cloud" that shows you how you can use Amazon EC2 for calculation tasks.

Of course, this example is very simple (it using usual C# program) and you may consider to use more powerful grid computing frameworks to receive full advantages of distributed calculations.

But even if you are far from such tasks in usual job and did not have a lot of experience in area of distributed calculations you can easy host your calculation application at hardware that can be unavailable for you at this moment with the help of cloud (Amazon EC2 in our example).

Just few minutes and your application is running at very power hardware while your computer is free. And moreover you pay only for short period of time when hardware is busy.
