Great, thanks! Looking forward to playing with EBS optimized instances.
As for enhance networking, do the official starcluster HVM AMIs have the required NIC driver? If not, why not, and how would I know which drivers to install? And short of benchmarking the network, is there any simple way to tell whether enhanced networking is functioning on my cluster?
