OmniOS Installation in the Amazon Cloud

OmniOS is provided as a public Amazon Machine Image (AMI) within some regions in the Amazon Cloud; you can have a virtual OmniOS server up and running within a couple of minutes. The image is small so can be run within the free tier - a t2.micro instance is perfect for experimentation.
