by earl, 5794 days agoGreg Linden: "I think Amazon EC2 should offer a lower rate for low priority requests for servers. Servers at this rate could be pulled from the client at any time for higher priority jobs. Pricing could be very low because idle servers are worthless to Amazon. If the price point is near the marginal cost of the server time, this service would be attractive to many."
Yeah, that's on my EC2 wishlist as well. Along with more technical wishes like more RAM for the nodes and the possibility to run 64-bit guests. Still, EC2 rocks and has lots of potential.
