If your data is in S3, my experience is that you can push ~20-40MB/core/sec on most instances.

OP is probably talking about an x1e.32xlarge. According to Daniel Vassalo's S3 benchmark [1], it can do about 2.7GB/sec.

So your 4TB DB might take ~30min to fetch.

Bandwidth is free, you'd pay $2 for the 30 min of compute, and some fractions of pennies for the few hundred S3 requests.

It's to note that any data exported out of AWS will be billed at $0.09/GB, or $90/TB
