Hi All -

Recently I noticed that openSUSE 12.3 to EC2 build has been dropped by SUSE Studio. If I use SLES 11 SP2 for an appliance and build for EC2 will any eval licenses expire or will there be any additional charges?

For a little background I built a web app on an opensuse11 LAMP stack and its recently ran into issues where it was freezing up and crashing the AMI. I've had to move the site over to my DEV VMware lab but i really need to roll a new AMI and get this off home hardware. Since openSUSE really isn't an option for EC2 any longer I just need to understand SLES licensing and if I have to pay anything in this particular case above and beyond the amazon charges.

Currently I have registered a small generic unix/linux reserved instance with Amazon.

Thanks!

J

Pricing questions are always a little tricky to answer defnitively here
because we're volunteers who can't speak authoritatively about SUSE's
pricing model or applicable discounts.

You may want to contact SUSE sales directly to ask this question -
contact information is on the main SUSE website.
