In the cloud, instances are ephemeral; this is especially true if you use auto scaling. Instances will be added when demand increases or to replace a faulty instance. This can make it tricky to figure out what instances are serving what services. Netflix Eureka is a service discovery service; services will register with Eureka to announce their availability and clients will query Eureka to find which instance is hosting a service. In this article, we will go through the steps to get Eureka up and running.

We have updated Pygoscelis Papua Linux, our unofficial build of Gentoo Linux, for November 2014.

Some announcements regarding the Pygoscelis Papua Linux AMIs that will start in January 2015:

There will be a 12 month rolling wave for AMIs. So the 2015-01 release will come and the 2014-01 release will be retired. The retired AMIs will remain on us-east-1 for archival purposes. If you wish to copy any of the old images, our articles HowTo: Copy EC2 EBS AMIs Between Accounts and HowTo: Move an EC2 EBS AMI From One Region to Another may be of use.

Due to the fact that all instance types can run 64-bit AMIs and all the instance types that can run 32-bit AMIs are considered previous generation, only the 64-bit paravirtual and hvm images will be produced. You will still be able to use the bootstraper to make 32-bit images though, see Pygoscelis Papua Linux: Bootstrapping for more.

As announced in September, the Gentoo in the Cloud AMIs have been retired. Since January 2014, the Gentoo in the Cloud AMIs have been succeeded by the Pygoscelis Papua Linux AMIs, which are our newer unofficial Gentoo builds. The Pygoscelis Papua Linux AMIs will continue to built.

The Gentoo in the Cloud AMIs have been removed from all the regions except us-east-1, where they will remain for archival purposes. If you wish to copy any of the old images, our articles HowTo: Copy EC2 EBS AMIs Between Accounts and HowTo: Move an EC2 EBS AMI From One Region to Another may be of use.
