Slashdot recently brought word that the Remus project (which implements hot-backup Xen instances) has been merged into the core Xen. Since Amazon have leveraged Xen in building out EC2, I naturally can't help but wonder if Remus:
- has been deployed as part of EC2?
- has been considered by Amazon for use with EC2?
- has been rejected for some reason(s) unknown to me?
The possibilities introduced to the realities of EC2 by Remus make me want to jump out of my pants. If anyone knows anything on the subject, please post an answer.
