I need to scale some services from local servers to Amazon ec2. The current production-environment is based on the latest openSUSE. In order to keep things simple, I want to run the instances in ec2 in the same environment.

However, I'm unable to find any public SUSE ami's or even howto's on this subject. I've seen a few similar questions in different forums, without any resolutions.

So actually, I have two questions.

1) Is this at all doable? 2) If, so, is there any documentation / howto's available somewhere?
