I have to wonder if their Lambda service might be worth looking into. Any reason you're using full on servers rather than some kind of a compute engine? I don't have the great fortune of getting to work with those kinds of numbers, so forgive my ignorance here, I'm really curious about your setup. :)

I'm not the original commented but I have analyzed Lambda for some tasks and found its costs prohibitive. Moreover, aws Lambda has a 300 second timeout limit so it is not feasable for heavy processing.

I played with lambda recently. It's further than Functions [0] but it has a lot of limitations. We like to have control over our infrastructure, at least some kind of control.
