Dashboard is useful for monitoring and for test. In production environment it is good to make use of ec2 api. For instance, I'm working now on automatic deployment of applications on the cloud with chef-server.

For instance:

knife euca server create 'role[oracle-xe]' -I ami-0000000a -f m1.tiny -G default --ssh-key mykey -i /root/id_rsa -x root -d centos5-gems -s

This command creates me an instance with oracle-xe installed on it. This is wonderful thing to automatize the provision and deployment of applications, when you use many different application stacks (programming languages, frameworks, databases, etc) or different configurations for development, testing, producation, etc. The possibilites are infinite.

Happy clouding! Tomasz Kłosiński
