Deploying Applications Using Amazon EC2

The AWS SDK for .NET supports Amazon EC2, which is a web service that provides resizable computing capacity—literally, servers in Amazon's data centers—that you use to build and host your software systems. The Amazon EC2 APIs are provided by the AWSSDK.EC2 assembly.

The Amazon EC2 instances examples are intended to help you get started with Amazon EC2.

The Amazon EC2 Spot instances examples show you how to use Spot instances, which enable you to bid on unused Amazon EC2 capacity and run any instances that you acquire for as long as your bid exceeds the current Spot price. Amazon EC2 changes the Spot price periodically based on supply and demand; customers whose bids meet or exceed it gain access to the available Spot instances. For more information, see Spot Instances in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances and Spot Instances in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Windows Instances.
