Linux distribution SuSE SLES 11 and 12 request

Is it possible to gain access to replicate the SMT-EC2 repositories via rsync ?

I could off course just use wget to download everything, but I want the possibility to just sync the changes every night.

The reasoning behind my idea, is to create a local repository where I can to some staging to different environments, instead of always running with the latest packages from the SMT-EC2 repository.

Question also posten on AWS forums, but it looks like it is SuSE who is driving the SMT service in AWS, correct me if I am wrong.

In order to create your own package cache you will need to run your own SMT which would need to be registered to SCC (SUSE Customer Center), meaning you need to have at least 1 subscription directly from SUSE, while everything else can be on-demand.

Thank you for your answer

To deploy an SMT is an approach.

But that doesn't give me access to the EC2 specific kernel updates, and whatever additional there is added to that repository.

Do you know if there are anything besides kernel packages there are EC2 specific ?

When deploying a SuSE from the AWS marketplace I can see that the kernel is like this: 3.0.101-108.13-ec2
And the update packages is also available:
i | kernel-ec2 | package | 3.0.101-108.13.1 | x86_64 | SLES11-SP4-Updates
v | kernel-ec2 | package | 3.0.101-108.10.1 | x86_64 | SLES11-SP4-Updates
v | kernel-ec2 | package | 3.0.101-108.7.1 | x86_64 | SLES11-SP4-Updates
v | kernel-ec2 | package | 3.0.101-107.1 | x86_64 | SLES11-SP4-Updates
v | kernel-ec2 | package | 3.0.101-104.2 | x86_64 | SLES11-SP4-Updates
v | kernel-ec2 | package | 3.0.101-100.1 | x86_64 | SLES11-SP4-Updates
v | kernel-ec2 | package | 3.0.101-97.1 | x86_64 | SLES11-SP4-Updates

v | kernel-ec2 | package | 3.0.101-88.1 | x86_64 | SLES11-SP4-Updates
v | kernel-ec2 | package | 3.0.101-84.1 | x86_64 | SLES11-SP4-Updates

v | kernel-ec2 | package | 3.0.101-71.1 | x86_64 | SLES11-SP4-Updates

v | kernel-ec2 | package | 3.0.101-65.1 | x86_64 | SLES11-SP4-Updates

Do you know whether it is possible to acquire these ?
