moved-the-webserver-to-amazon-ec2-is-is-faster

We've moved our web-server to the cloud. We're getting more traffic and we've been using more bandwidth for development, so we decided to move the server to Amazon's EC2. This may be temporary depending on how it holds up. It's a little disconcerting to have your website out there in the ether.

I want to explore EC2 further. I definitely want to put a WiKID server up there, but I don't know if it would be useful. Most companies use unencrypted protocols like Radius inside the firewall, so it seems impractical for corporate authentication. It may be of interest to Web-based applications that would use our encrypted protocol anyway. I wonder if the communications between two instances owned by the same user are 'in the open' back there in the back of the EC2 cloud? It's interesting stuff, for sure and it was very easy to setup.
