    re: EC2 recommendations

    Jeff, great question.
    While I can't give specifics to the overall deployment, I can share my single-node benchmarking results for the various EC2 instance types. The benchmark application was our TPC-C-like implementation (see http://community.voltdb.com/node/134 for more information).

    Virtual EC2 Compute Transactions
    Server Instance Type Size GB RAM Cores(2) Units(2) per Second
    Bare Metal(1) N/A N/A 48.0 N/A N/A 52,000
    Amazon EC2 Standard L 7.5 2 4 7,430
    Amazon EC2 Standard XL 15.0 4 8 9,629
    Amazon EC2 High-Memory XL 17.1 2 6.5 10,954
    Amazon EC2 High-Memory XXL 34.2 4 13 15,214
    Amazon EC2 High-Memory XXXXL 68.4 8 26 19,018
    Amazon EC2 High-CPU XL 7.0 8 20 11,414

    (1) Machine tested was in-house Dell R610, 2 x Xeon 5550 CPU (8 cores total + hyperthreading), 48GB RAM @ 1333Mhz, CentOS 5.5

    (2) See http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/#instance for more information on EC2

    Let me know if this helps.
