Step #01 : Prepare Cloud Virtual Machine in iwStack.com


Please see Tasks Performed, below, to get an idea of the contents of this first video :

I use iwstack rather than Amazon or Heroku (or etc., etc.) for a number of reasons :
  • based on Apache CloudStack, there's no supplier lock-in at all.
  • for three years now, I have had truly excellent service from Prometeus, the parent company.
  • I can scale resources on demand, billed per hour of usage, with full root access, or turn everything off and pay a few cents a day for storage of my virtual appliances.
You will have not need iwstack, or even CloudStack for that matter, for videos four through nine.  I use a server in iwstack for administering the various VPS servers my customers have around the web, and shut it down when I don't need it.
