We've been receiving a lot of very positive feedback since we added Amazon EC2 support in SUSE Studio, so I'd just like to take a moment to thank everyone for their support!
Feature requests keep coming in, but one in particular stands out due to its popularity -- the ability to create openSUSE EBS AMIs. This is especially useful as Amazon's free usage tier does not support instance-store backed AMIs (which we already support in Studio for openSUSE).
So after some nudging from one of our users, Thomps, I did some hacking over the weekend and added openSUSE EBS support in the create_ebs_ami.sh script (which is by the way, open-source and available on Github). This will be merged into Studio soon.
While working on this, I noticed that there aren't any official public openSUSE AMIs out there, so I created some with SUSE Studio (32 bit, 64 bit). The full list of public openSUSE 11.3 AMIs are listed in the table below.

List of public openSUSE 11.3 AMIs. S3 = instance-store.
With Amazon's free usage tier, you can run these openSUSE EBS AMIs completely free for the first 750 hours!
Copy and paste the appropriate AMI IDs here into your Amazon Management Console, or simply search for it there by selecting "Public Images" and "OpenSUSE". If you only want to run the AMIs from us, look out for the owner "720220196365".
We will also be releasing public openSUSE 11.4 AMIs when openSUSE 11.4 is released (10 March 2011), so stay tuned!
Update (Mar 5 16:49 CET): Added AMIs for new Asia Pacific (Tokyo) region.
