  • Amazon EC2 will definitely be better than other because you get complete control over it.
    I have configured a EC2 instance for the company I work. Its like configuring your own system.
    You have to just create an instance then ssh into it. Then do whatever you want with it.

  • I'm using UbuntuOne for what it's worth. Integration with Nautilus and a web interface. It's pretty nice.

  • EC2 has the tools that make using and managing a cloud infrastructure. Rightscale and even tools like s3fox and elasticfox make ec2 dead easy.

    Rightscale also now works with Eucalyptus, which is available with Ubuntu 9.04, so you can use some of those tools for private cloud deployments as well.
