Add first-class support for Amazon
Add first-class integration for hosting on Amazon cloud services (like MS does with Azure), e.g. adapters for Amazon cloud services, docs on automated deployment/hosting strategies.
We’ve just released our AWS support in v4.0.48: https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack/blob/master/docs/2015/release-notes.md#servicestackaws
We’ll continue to expand support for AWS in future, please file separate feature requests for other support for AWS you’d like to see.
Yep RDS works just like any on premise database. We've been using OrmLite with PostgreSQL RDS on https://servicestack.net and all Live Demos for over a year - RDS has been fantastic: great-value, auto-backups, self-managing, no-issues, hassle-free.
Demis, you mentioned 'get ormlite to work with amazon RDS" .. doesn't it already do that ? I mean ormlite can't connect to MySql for example hosted on RDS ? please elaborate on this ..
any update on this ? this feature would be much appreciated given aws being the leader of cloud services providers.. features could include a custom authentication provider to support Amazon Cognito, better deployment stories, etc..

In case you hadn't seen, AWS now offers Redis as part of their Elasticache offering
Cool, though I was mainly thinking about Integration with Amazon components, e.g. An MQ adapter for Amazon SQS, Caching provider for AWS Dynamo DB (we already have), get OrmLite to work with Amazon RDS, etc, basically everything you'd need to provide a great story of ServiceStack on AWS.

Assuming there is a proxy server (e.g. ELB) sitting in front of any given ServiceStack service, using a EC2 VM as a "Unit of Deploy" could be nice - so a new deploy is a new VM, which when up, registers with the proxy/ELB and the old one is shutdown.
