I thought Atomic didn't support EC2 at all because of the kernel problems?
We support it. Not sure what that quote has to do with not supporting it, we never said we don't support Amazon.
What we said is that EC2 is slow, on Amazons kernel, and without modsecurity installed. You opened a case about Amazon being slow, and we can tell you that we have also seen that. If you want to use Amazon, please do, just know that they provide a much slower platform (significantly) than any other virtualization provider we have worked with and that its repeatedly a slow platform without modsecurity, ASL, or anything from us installed. Slow enough in fact that our parent company had to move some large and popular Apple application developers off it (and they were not using ASL or modsecurity either).
Its just a slow platform.
