I had a suggestion that I wanted to pass along regarding the HCP. I would like to be able to have a ready to go AWS Marketplace AMI with a configured HCP that I could easily start and use both from the admin/search console perspectives as well as experimenting with the various apis (such as ReST) to talk to it. This would make it much easier to learn some of the ins and outs without have to go through the installation/setup/configuration of one. The AMI could be very limited in terms of space and/time time usage. It would be just for test and learning purposes. This would let developers or anyone else try it out with minimal hassle that could be launched and terminated as needed. I would guess that not long afterwards GitHub repos with easy to use working examples would appear.
Anyone have thoughts on that?
