Amazon Adds Windows Server to EC2

Hours after CloudCamp SV ended, Amazon's Werner Vogel blogged and tweeted some huge news: Amazon just went to private beta with Windows Server instances for EC2, including the ability to run several Windows Media codexes for hosting video and audio. Apparently the entertainment industry was waiting for this with baited breath. However,there is clearly a huge ASP.NET audience to be won here, as well.

Congratulations to the Amazon team, and I'll have more to say about this in the coming days.
