comment In AWS, does an hour of usage get charged just for an instance being in the “running” state?
Note that reservations have now changed. Under the new structure, all reservations are Heavy and commit you to paying for the full reservation period whether the instance is running or not, and you can choose to pay all up-front, all monthly, or a mixture. The more you pay up-front, the cheaper it is.

comment How can I block traffic FROM Amazon Technologies Inc. (possible DDOS attack)
Are you sure you can't afford a virtual server? You can get them for very few US dollars per month, and you get much greater flexibility to deal with this kind of situation.

comment Which server to locate SSL certificates when using Apache reverse proxy
Every server that will terminate an SSL connection has to have a certificate -- it can be the same certificate if the domain name(s) are all included in the certificate, and your licence agreement with your certificate supplier permits it. A proxy that forwards an SSL connection without terminating it doesn't need a certificate, but is severely limited in its functionality as it has no access to things like the http headers.

comment Which server to locate SSL certificates when using Apache reverse proxy
Do you want the proxy to terminate SSL and load pages from the endpoints over regular http, the proxy to terminate SSL but then also load the pages from the endpoints over separate SSL connections, or the proxy to just forward SSL connections to and from the endpoints without terminating the SSL connection itself? You can configure it in any of those ways, and the answer is different for each.

comment Cassandra 2.x - cluster does not rebalance after adding new nodes
Sorry, I've not used the -par option, so I can't comment on that. But having looked at the documentation, I wouldn't recommend using that option on a live database.

Repair will use more space, but not double the space, as it works on one replica at a time. So it will use additional space equal to the size of your largest replica.

comment How to run a script within an Amazon EC2 when the instance starts for the first time?
Stick it in rc.local as you're doing, but have the script delete itself when it finishes running.
