I was looking into EC2 for a client, and it's like everything else - you
get what you pay for. And you need to do a bit of upfront research to
decide what size instance you want/need, what AMI to use, etc.

But you can fire up an on-demand instance without an upfront *cost*
and see how it works, which is a better deal than conventional hosting.

Worth a test drive, I'd say, if you think your site's performance issues
can be addressed by throwing CPU (or memory) at them  :-)
