I have a m1.large Debian based server on EU-West. Recently due to some changes in organization's policies we are to move to Rackspace. How would i move an AWS EC2 EU-West Debian Instance to Rackspace? Unfortunately it wasn't setup by me so i don't know exactly what and how it was configured, by a rough estimate i think i would need about a week to setup a fresh one with everything installed and configured same as this one.
I have also seen some scripts/posts that suggest to use same distro, same kernel on both source and target and then just rsync whole system(excluding few directories) to target.
