outstanding Jeff.
we're very excited about this.
any indication yet of when multicast support might be added to vpc?



Great job. Now hoping that ELB will support paid AMIs soon :)


Jeff, are connections from a VPN into the VPC still precluded from using ELB.

"We are also working on additional enhancements...and the ability to use Elastic Load Balancers for internal application tiers." seems to indicate that isn't supported yet and the diagram doesn't include that scenario either.


Freaky -

We have the same question as Mark. Currently the company security policy dictates that all internet access goes through the main office.

Whilst we can make sure the instances themselves access the internet over the company connection/VPN by the use of the routing tables, this is not the case for incoming traffic through the load balancers, as those require the use of the internet gateway on the Amazon side.

Any information regarding this functionality, especially a timeline, would be greatly appreciated. Projects are currently still in testing phase and it would be nice to know if the functionality is going to be available once we switch to running production.


I wonder what the top layer would look like for using latency based routing?


Can you be more specfic about how the pink ELB section is actually created? Everything I have tried gives me the servers of one ELB or the other but not both, i.e. all servers.

You said "In order to allow for room (IP address space) for each ELB to grow as part of the intrinsic ELB scaling process, the subnet must contain at least 100 IP addresses"

What is the genesis of this limit? Rightscale benchmarks of the ELB have monitored 22 IPs in use for a sustained request rate of 19,000/sec ! So what is the reason for requiring a minimum CIDR of /25 ?
