comment Passing a private key to scp from the command line instead of a file
@MadHatter I agree though I haven't decided the right way to do this. I can't disclose any more than I have so far and it seems that this does not have a direct solution. As I said, I have alternatives around this problem though not as performant. I will vote to close this question per your suggestion.

@GeraldSchneider We don't have previous knowledge of what machines we will need to connect to and as time goes by this number will go up, so this isn't an option.

comment Passing a private key to scp from the command line instead of a file
@MadHatter, I omitted part of the problem because it is very hard to explain. The truth is that this is not an actual shell but some sort of hybrid that only has a couple of commands available (scp being one). We can't actually control the environment nor install anything on it. Passing the key in the command line will save me A LOT of coding, that's why I'm asking but I do have -long- ways around this. GordonDavisson, no I can't mount a ramdisk or "point" the key to an external location unfortunatelly.

Finally spent a LOT of time trying to understand your article and ended up making this work. Thanks!

thank you for your detailed answer! I need a little time to read (and understand) your articles but in the meantime let me just shed more light into the matter. I was indeed quoting the specs of what I found in Amazon docs. The actual server returns this when I go sudo df -h: /dev/xvda1 Size: 7.9G Used: 7.6G Avail: 0.3G Mounted on: /. (I reformatted the output here). Now I need to find out whether this is instance store or EBS (not clear on the differences). The only thing I know is this is an out of the box image (that's what my client says, anyways), nothing customized.

@ceejayoz Looks a little out of my league. I was expecting something more control-panel oriented but this has pointed me in the right direction. I may need to hire someone to do this for me. Thanks!

comment Question regarding uptime strategy for website
after reading your comment I've spoken to a salesperson at Edgecast and liked what I heard. We've had lot's of outages with Rackspace Cloud that's why we're doing some research. The Rackspace dedicated servers are extremely well supported but their cloud network is too young and has around 10 micro outages per month (which is not acceptable for this particular project).
