I want to move my MongoDB from a virtual server to amazon web services. I know MongoDB provides a preconfigured AMI, with three provisioned EBS volumes. But this is only available for m1.large instances and higher. But I need only small or medium instance and only standard EBS volumes. Do you know, if it is possible to start the AMI with my requirements? Or have I to build it on my self with standard EBS volumes? Instance upgrading is no problem, but can I also upgrade the standard EBS to provisioned IOPS if needed?
You may think, the small instance is not suitable for MongoDB, but currently our vserver has also only 1GB of memory and one cpu and it runs good for the current load of max 70 visits per day.
