The IP address ranges do not specify S3 endpoints.

comment EC2 drive not EBS volume size
I would recommend petitioning centos.org to stop building AMIs with partitioned root EBS volumes. There is no benefit to this if you're using a single partition and it makes resizing more difficult. Amazon doesn't do this with their AMIs. Nor do Ubuntu, Red Hat, and others. It's a best practice to simply lay the file system on the raw EBS volume without extra useless barriers that need to be moved around on resize.

comment EC2 drive not EBS volume size
Extending the partition is only necessary if the volume is partitioned. That is pretty rare on EC2. The common best practice with EBS is to format the entire raw volume with the file system without positioning it first. This is especially true for boot volumes. Positioning is an artifact of physical disks, where they aren't quite the size you want for your file systems. On EC2, you simply create EBS volume(s) of the right size and drop the file system on the raw volume without partitions.
