Testing the WebVelocity AWS EC2 image

Just tested the AWS EC2-based WebVelocity 1.1 beta.

A few gotchas:

  1. The ec2 image ami-9a866ef3 is available in the US East region
  2. You need to set up the EC2 firewall to allow access to port 7777.
  3. The ubuntu ec2 server is accessed via ssh -i your-key ubuntu@public-dns-address
  4. The web username:password to the WebVelocity app is admin:password
What's nice is that the EC2 image is ebs-based, which means you can halt the server, and only pay storage costs, between testing sessions.
