Hi Ed:

I have no EU AMIs, but I've been curious about the second question you have: what's the 'easy' way to transfer AMIs? I poked around a bit today, and it looks like '', part of the VM::EC2 Perl module, is a good solution ... except that it converts my HVM AMIs to PV. Argh! :)

I've got a query in with the developer (Lincoln Stein) about HVM copies. I'll let you know what I discover.

That said, if others have other easy ways to transfer AMIs ... I'm all ears too!

Subject: [StarCluster] Amazon AMI 64-bit Ubuntu 11 HVM-EBS for eu-west-1 region


Does anyone know if there is an AMI available using HVM version of Ubuntu for the cc8.xlarge compute node for starcluster in the eu-west-1 region?

I have been quite happily using the AMI ami-4583572c us-east-1 starcluster-base-ubuntu-11.10-x86_64-hvm (HVM-EBS) on the us-east region, but couldn't find any HVM versions in the eu region.

Any ideas? Can the HVM-EBS be easily transferred to the eu region?
