    Anyone use Amazon EC2 hosting? How do they compare both in performance and price to shared hosting and a VPS? It's hard to gauge how much EC2 will cost since you pay for up time and data transfers IN and OUT. It looks like there is a free tier if you stay within the Micro instance. Does anyone have any experiences with Amazon?
