We have simplified the process of requesting additional EC2 instances. You no longer need to call me at home or send a box of dog biscuits to Rufus.
You can now make a request by simply filling out the Request to Increase the Amazon EC2 Instance Limit form. We'll need to know a little bit about you and about your application and the number of instances that you need, and we'll take care of the rest.
As always, if you are doing something cool with EC2, we really want to hear about it! Write a blog post that we can link to, or simply send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
