I am working on a compute service that will require automatic deployment of our software (~30 megs). The software is a WCF service, so I am stuck with windows. I can't use mono because we use lots of classes that are not implemented in it.
We could easily do the deployment on linux through SSH & SFTP, which are enabled by default. The telnet service has to be manually started on Windows instances. Is there a way to leverage RDP for this?
I can create an AMI with telnet enabled. But, it seems like overkill.
How do people automate the deployment on default windows instances? Or does everybody create an AMI with their softwares already installed?
