8/5     VPS is a LOT cheaper than EC2 by at least 5X and sometimes
        10X. Why is EC2 so popular when the price is not even
        \_ One month of standard with 600GB of bandwidth is $39/mo
           for VPS. For a year that would be $428. That is about
           the same price as an EC2 medium instance for a year.
           Where do you get the 5X from?
        \_ VPS is not terribly elastic, and hasn't got a rich API w/
           programmable network and storage services?
