At the time of asking the answer was unfortunately No, but no more! You can now easily access Amazon Cloud Drive from the terminal using an OpenSource client called adc_cli, which is written in Python (3) and runs under Windows / Linux / Mac.

No, listening sockets on localhost (127.0.0.1 or ::1 on IPv6-enabled systems) are only accessible from the very same system they were created on. To configure a program to listen on all interfaces, you'd usually use 0.0.0.0 or ::. According to a quick Google search this should also be valid for node.js.

If your site is running 24x7 you should not use a on demand instance, on demand instances are for temporary jobs that you need a machine for (like load balancing for extra traffic).

Usually, the price you pay for the "Enterprise" versions (RHEL, SLES) isn't for a bonus in performance, but for a bonus in service. For example, a certain to-remain-unnamed provider of "enterprise" databases won't offer you any support unless you are running the database on a certified Linux (i.e., SLES, RHEL). If you don't have support contracts to worry ...

Bare keys do not have "key IDs". They're just series of numbers. If the key belongs to an X.509 certificate, then the certificate's fingerprint (a SHA-1 hash of the DER-encoded cert) will be used for identification: openssl x509 -outform der | openssl sha1, or openssl x509 -noout -fingerprint. Otherwise (if it's just a bare public/private keypair), the ...

If you have versioning enable, yes you can! On a versioned bucket, a delete action on a file does not really delete it but it adds a version with a "Delete Marker".

Nope, joining to a new network won't give you a new address. Installing a new device, won't change the existing MAC address on your other card. It'll, it is a single 'emulated' network device. The only thing that can more likely to change your address is a driver update which happened to me many times during the past. When I have an older card, and the ...

It wasn't clear from your question if you have already tried the git aws.push option. You could refer a blog post on AWSBlog for deploying Rack based applications to AWS Elastic Beanstalk. To summarize the same, you can do it in the following easy steps: eb init eb start git aws.push This, of course, requires you to download AWS Elastic Beanstalk command ...

zypper is the suse package manager. Ubuntu uses apt (in whatever flavor you choose. aptitude, apt-get, etc.). You might be able to find a version of zypper for Ubuntu but I wouldn't bet on it... nor would I suggest you even bother trying. Just use one of the apt family of tools. As an aside that error isn't directly related to the zypper problem and is ...

You're comparing apples with pears. A dedicated server is a dedicated server, it's all yours and it has definite limits on it's capacity. A cloud based host is a cloud based host, and they are almost certainly using virtualization to a large extent, which does not only mean power savings and less physical hardware, but also that the actual hardware available ...
