BackBox Linux proudly announce that we are about to release our Amazon AMI server. We already have a generated AMI for BackBox Server version and it is available on EC2 AMI store.
The generated AMI is not to be considererd as the definitive version as it is the very first step towards the Cloud Environment. Because of that we can consider it as a test AMI but fully functional.
To find and test our first AMI you will need the AMI name or ID which is:
Name -> backbox ID -> ami-06d6ea43
Soon we will have the full and stable versions of BackBox for both Desktop and Server environments which will be available in AWS AMI store (either 32 and 64 bit).
