comment MDADM not able to connect to EBS drives on Ubuntu 11.10
There is some bug in the Networked Drive -> EBS abstraction where latency delays cause mdmadm to report the drive as busy. @rpkelly is correct, just retry several times until it works. Actual drive performance seems unaffected. I would set a retry limit of 5, it usually takes 1-3 times to succeed.

EBS snapshots only charge you for the data used, the drives charge you for the reserved size.

comment Git Server on Shared Hosting
Could you elaborate more? Do you want to host the repository or just pull the code down? What functionality are you looking for that github.com can't provide?

Not a problem, I'll vote up the question to see if it can get some more views.

comment Amazon RDS: Is it possible to have more than 5 read replicas?
Best to ask Amazon directly on their forums. The alternative is to build your own database, though that can be an endeavor.

comment Is a mounted EBS volume connected to an instance via network?
Also, don't get confused by people referring to the 'local disks' which are actually local hard drives, these go by the term Instance Store. Their performance can vary, but on different factors.
