Description: Canaries aren't just hardware devices. You can run virtual Canaries inside your Amazon EC2 infrastructure, using the same console as always.
Here's how to do it.
Browse to your Console, enter your credentials, and click "Setup". You should see "Cloud Canary" in the settings menu. If you don't, please contact support with your Amazon Account ID, and the regions you want to run CloudCanaries in.
In addition, you'll see a list of AMIs in the regions you requested.
Note that a registered but offline CloudCanary will still occupy a license. If you've terminated a bird in EC2, don't forget to decommission it in your Canary Console.
Find the EC2 region you want to launch your bird into, and click "Launch". This will open the EC2 dashboard in a new tab, ready to launch your AMI.
Simply configure your EC2 instance as usual, selecting the instance type, configuring the instance details, storage, tags and security groups according to your preferences.
On last EC2 step, click the "Launch" button to start the bird. It will take a couple of minutes to boot and configure itself.
If the launch process returns an error regarding accepting terms, this page describes the steps you need to take.
When the bird is configured and running, it will contact the console to register itself. You will then need to commission the device in the Canary console. In your Console tab, wait for the commission dialog.
Click "Commission Canary", and the bird's status will go green.
It's now ready for remote configuration to enable profiles and services.
