I tried using "Right Scale" which can actually try the same virtual server that Amazon is using for free

It is almost that I lend the Amazon environment of the famous online shopping site "Amazon EC 2Virtual server service "(so-calledCloud Computing). It is a pay-as-you-go service that pays as much as using a virtual server environment close to a dedicated server, and after releasing a small net service on a trial, it became very popular when I realized it! Even in the case like it, you only pay money according to the scale without worrying about the load, so it is possible to grow bigger for the first time at a fairly low cost. It is a great merit that you can concentrate on only the software part without thinking about expansion etc. of hardware more than anything.

However, it is quite troublesome and difficult to understand if you think to actually do it. Here you can use this "Right Scale"You can use Amazon EC 2 free trial for 10 hours. In addition to being able to graphically manage Amazon EC2, it is possible to load balance and auto scaling.

So, I tried to review what it actually can be trialed, from registration, installation to SSH connection.
