Thanks for the reply. I’m a noob at AWS and devops, it’s not that the templates are massively in my way, the bigger obstacle is restricted regions, means to try this out I’ll need to redeploy my personal server/lambdas into a different region but that’s OK. The way they were in my way I guess is that I’m using saltstack with boto to directly provision resources and not currently using CloudFormation for anything so it’s something extra I’d need to learn/integrate. Like if I can’t take it apart and look at the pieces I’ll never understand it.
How do I get to the individual AMI, by drilling into the templates? If it’s unsupported then that’s OK, I won’t ask for any support and anyway didn’t know I was entitled to any. Just a quick pointer to where the AMI is and how to enable the cloud licensing thing on it if that’s not automatic if that’s possible!
Was just hoping to play with it/see if the tuple model and way to query is useful for me, maybe run a benchmark. If it is then try it as basis for personal db.
