Connecting to Linux/UNIX Instances from Linux/UNIX. After you launch your instance, you can connect to it and use it the way that you'd use a computer sitting in front of you.

Connecting to Linux/UNIX Instances from Linux/UNIX

Note After you launch an instance, it can take a few minutes for the instance to be ready so that you can connect to it. Check that your instance has passed its status checks - you can view this information in the Status Checks column on the Instances page. The following instructions explain how to connect to your instance using an SSH client. If you receive an error while attempting to connect to your instance, see Troubleshooting Connecting to Your Instance. Before you connect to your Linux instance, complete the following prerequisites: Install an SSH clientYour Linux computer most likely includes an SSH client by default. Connecting to Instances. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide (API Version 2014-02-01) Connect to Your Instance This section describes how to connect to instances that you launched and how to transfer files between your local computer and your instance.

Connecting to Instances

After you connect to your instance, you can try one of our tutorials, such as Tutorial: Installing a LAMP Web Server or Tutorial: Hosting a WordPress Blog with Amazon EC2. <div class="yui-b" style="padding: 20px; padding-top: 0;"><div class="yui-ge"><div class="yui-u first"><div id="error_messages"><img src=" style="float: left;" alt="Warning"><div style="float:left; margin-left: 1em;"><strong>Javascript is disabled or is unavailable in your browser. Launching and Using Instances. An instance is a virtual server in the AWS cloud.

Launching and Using Instances

You launch an instance from an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). The AMI provides the operating system, application server, and applications for your instance. When you sign up for AWS, you can get started with Amazon EC2 for free using the AWS Free Usage Tier. You can either leverage the Free Usage Tier to launch and use a micro instance for free for 12 months.

Instead of interpolating the values smoothly, it allows us to define the number of “frames” precisely. So I used it to create headers that have the well-known animated “typing effect”: Search Algorithms with Google Director of Research Peter Norvig. Google Artificial Intelligence in Search As you will see in the transcript below, this discussion focused on the use of artificial intelligence algorithms in search.

Search Algorithms with Google Director of Research Peter Norvig

Peter outlines for us the approach used by Google on a number of interesting search problems, and how they view search problems in general. This is fascinating reading for those of you who want to get a deeper understanding of how search is evolving and the technological approaches that are driving it. The types of things that are detailed in this interview include: The basic approach used to build Google TranslateThe process Google uses to test and implement algorithm updatesHow voice driven search worksThe methodology being used for image recognitionHow Google views speed in searchHow Google views the goals of search overall Some of the particularly interesting tidbits include: Teaching automated translation systems vocabulary and grammar rules is not a viable approach.
