comment Software RAID10 for later growth
See my response to this topic below and the blog entry I linked to. EC2 volumes just fail in unusual ways. Also, see aws.amazon.com/message/65648 - the post mortem from the great EBS outage of 2011.

Amazon's statement on the volume durability issue has been demonstrated to be false on multiple occasions.

comment Launch memcached on server boot?
chkconfig --list memcached will show you if it worked. If you don't have an /etc/init.d/memcached file, this won't get the job done.

Also, your instances do not jump around between hosts. They stay on the same physical machine for the lifetime of the instance.

comment EC2: Regular performance issues without obvious resource contention
EC2 is entirely suitable for enterprise applications. I work for a large ecommerce business with close to 200 instances and we are able to manage just fine. You have to work within the boundaries of the environment, though. I doubt Netflix would move to EC2 if it weren't suitable.
