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.

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. (Updated 2016-09-01 This rolling wave is now 3 months, keeping the two recent builds). 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 bootstrapper to make 32-bit images though, see Pygoscelis Papua Linux: Bootstrapping for more.
