Creating Amazon AWS Account With Virtual Credit Card

Amazon aws has always been an interesting topic for me since I work in a cloud computing environment. We (me with my team) have created a similar application in our company to manage different virtual machines that are required for software testing. It has very minor features though (create, clone, edit, migrate, shutdown like that), but our cloud application can create different flavors (windows xp, vista, win 7, debian linux, ubuntu, open suse, fedora, redhat, windows server 2003, windows server 2008) of virtual machines very quickly.

So, out of curiosity I asked my company’s management to fetch me an aws account to play around and understand its awesomeness. Well, I didn’t get it though. So finally, I have decided to get one on my own, of-course a personal account, but the problem is that I don’t have a credit card.

Being a software engineer is really a very good thing. You always have a work around for so many problems you get on the way. Fortunately, this one has a work around too. So, I created a virtual credit card using entropay which looks something like the one shown below.

If you are looking for a virtual credit card, then entropay is a really good site to start. So, once I got my virtual credit card, I unlinked my debit card which didn’t work and linked my virtual credit card and bhoom, I have my aws account functional at amazon.

I created a simple micro instance with ubuntu linux (although my fav is debian linux, I couldn’t find it during quick instance creation (Launch Instance > Classic Wizard)) and made a quick ssh connection and it worked. So, finally I have the amazon aws account I’ve been looking for to play around.

If you don’t have a credit card, you can use any of the virtual credit cards to signup for amazon and use their awesome aws.
