Hey,

I'm wondering whether the announcement Yesterday, July 15, 2010 means that finally it is going to be possible to run kernels with OpenVZ patch in an Amazon EC2 instance.

Announcement from the Amazon newsletter:
Amazon EC2 Support for User Managed Kernels
Many Amazon EC2 users have asked for the ability to load and manage their own kernels when they launch an instance, and now you can. Amazon EC2 has launched a special Amazon Kernel Image (AKI), based on Xen PV-GRUB, which loads a kernel of your choosing from your AMI when you launch an instance. We are working with popular AMI maintainers to begin using this feature, so that new instances launched with those AMIs will now have user managed kernels. Check with the maintainer of your AMI to see when they will make the switch. AMI maintainers choosing not to enable this feature will work just as they always have. If you bundle your own AMIs and want to start using this feature immediately, read this Feature Guide.

Sorry for bumping the old thread but have you (or anyone else) tried running OpenVZ on Amazon EC2? Is it possible?

We have finally done it. We used CentOS base install 64bit with the custom Amazon boot loader and the redhat kernel ovzkernel-xen-2.6.18-... from openvz.org

I don't have all the details, but finally it worked nicely, so it is doable.
