I've created an account on Amazon AWS because of their Free Usage Tier promotion. It allows for a "t1.micro" instance, free of charge for 1 year.

Unfortunately the "official" Ubuntu EBS images are 15 GB in size, and only 10 GB are free. And I know the monthly cost for the extra storage would be something like ~ 0.55 USD, but I was hoping for a free launch before investing in AWS, and I would rather spend that dollar on S3 :-)

So ... any Ubuntu EBS AMIs for t1.micro instances that are available in eu-west ?

    @Alexandru: sorry, didn't mean to be rude or anything. My first thought, when posting my comment, was: Perhaps this question would be better of on Serverfault.

http://bitnami.org/stacks. Has free 10Gb EBS images that use Ubuntu

  • These require some work to get to vanilla Ubuntu though, like dropping the bitnami user, removing their app stack from /opt and reverting other customizations sprinkled through configuration files... Dec 29, 2010 at 12:32

For anyone who finds this via Google, try the official Ubuntu AMIs that work: http://cloud.ubuntu.com/2010/11/using-ubuntu-images-on-aws-free-tier/
