                     19: [Amazon Web Services]( offers virtual hosts on demand via its [Amazon Elastic Comput Cloud]( (or EC2). Users can run a number of operating systems via so-called "Amazon Machine Images" (AMIs), currently including various Linux flavors and OpenSolaris, but not NetBSD.
                     21: This project would entail developing a NetBSD "AMI" and providing an easy step-by-step guide to create custom NetBSD AMIs. The difficulty of this is estimated to not be very high, as prior work in this direction exists (instructions for creating a FreeBSD AMI, for example, are available). Depending on the progress, we may adjust the final goals -- possibilities include adding necessary (though optional) glue to the release process to create official AMIs for each release or to provide images with common applications pre-installed.
