    Could you add a column for RightScale Dashboard on top of AWS for me. I will help you if you need more info.

    With RightScale the field is more level for the two offers.

    We add back lots of the features that are missing from AWS.

    Ask me is you need help. The Web Site covers most of these questions.

    Hi Ed,

    thanks for the feedback. I agree with you, only with RightScale the EC2 service becomes a real option for most users.

    See: http://hotware.wordpress.com/2008/07/25/a-short-cloud-hosting-link-list/

    I don’t know enough about RightScale though to be able to fill out the additional column correctly though.

    Ed, one more question: Do you see any chance of easily hosting Windows systems on EC2?
