Let's put the costs in perspective, last time I checked (a month ago)
these are EC2's cost.
Consider a utilization of a 40 hour work week with 5 machines
running with the following node mix/cost
Instance Ratio Cost
t1.micro %60 Free under 750hrs
m1.small %30 0.065/hr
m1.medium %10 0.130/hr
total hours: 40, so t1.micro = 0
(5 * .6 x 0) + (5 * .3 * 0.065) + (5 * .1 * .130) = [$$$/hour at 5nodes] = .162/hr
.162 * 8 [hours] * 5 [days] = $6.50
I recommend keeping the bootstrap node a small or medium and using micro
everywhere else. If you're looking for performance then pay for it.
As long as you don't leave it running all weekend e.g. 48hrs doing nothing,
it's pretty cost effective.
