under the http://www.spatial-ecology.net/ initiative we use the the
OSGeo-Llive for courses and intensive training in Geo Computation.
In this line we have been used also Amazon Web Service to teach remote
connection and scripting routines in the cloud. For this I was customize a
Ubuntu Instance very similar to the OSGeo-Llive.
Nonetheless, would be grate to have the OSGeo-Llive directly hosted in
AWS to allow teach but also to provide to the course participants
something that they can use after the course.
The AWS Educate <https://aws.amazon.com/education/awseducate/> provide
grants for education so maybe an official cooperation OSGeo&AWS can be a
solution to host for free a OSGeo-Llive Instance
