Is it possible to obtain a copy of Amazon Linux for use outside AWS
Does anyone know if it's possible to copy an Amazon Web Services EC2 image of a server back to a local machine and run it in Virtual Box? From research I can see that it's possible to do the reverse, take a Virtual Box image and migrate it to AWS, but I'm not sure if you can copy a live server setup to Virtual Box for development.
I've recently taken over a project being hosted on AWS EC2. The project requires linux and a fair bit of custom configuration to run, so this seamed the best way to setup a dev environment (our development machines are Macs).
