I know it's not quite EC2 (or Xen, so please excuse the posting to
freebsd-xen) but until Kip Macy gets a chance to make it happen on EC2
we're using CloudSigma and ElasticHosts for FreeBSD in the cloud. They
use KVM as a virtualisation platform and stock FreeBSD runs nicely on
it, and their prices aren't too far off what EC2 provide. They've both
got a very nice API too.
The only tweak you need to make is to set hw.mca.enable="0" on the
FreeBSD boot prompt. CloudSigma have a library image (like an AMI) which
includes this tweak (disclosure: I published this disk image).
See http://www.cloudsigma.com/about-us/press-releases/179 for
CloudSigma's recent press release about FreeBSD support and see
for info on the MCA bug and the fix. ElasticHosts are worth a mention too:
they use a very similar platform but have data centres is San Antonio, Texas
and London, UK. CloudSigma are based in Zurich, Switzerland only.
Hope this is of some assistance.
