    Michael – you’re right – it doesn’t show up on the aws page search, but I just tried to create an instance in the console, and it did show up in the list that pops up.

    Todd – this is terrific. I think all these major tools/pipelines/databases should have amazon instances! Just curious – are the contents of the AMI documented anywhere?

      Thanks, Sujai! Hope you find it useful. Definitely easier and faster than downloading and installing everything.

      I haven’t yet documented the full contents but the AMi is pretty full featured. If there is something specific you’d like to do, let me know.
