From Fedora Project Wiki

In addition to DVDs and Live CDs, the Fedora Project makes its distribution available on cloud computing architectures. These Fedora images provide an excellent (and extensible) foundation for your server or appliance.

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

Fedora's EC2 images follow the standard EC2 login conventions, meaning that root login is disabled, but sudo access is granted.

The default username for the images is ec2-user.

Full documentation for interacting with EC2 is available from Amazon Web Services.

Direct questions or comments to the Cloud SIG email list.
