Huh.  ec2 instances are not backed up unless you write scripts to back them
up to SOMEWHERE.  They are not salable unless you actually make them
scalable (mysql replication, load balancing).  It isn't the "cloud" like
you think it is.  Also ec2 or ec2 clones are over priced for a single wiki.
 www.lowendbox.com for significantly cheaper VPS servers (that is really
all ec2 is by itself).   Also, I don't charge for hosting sites.  At all.
 You should really take a look at the hosting options out there
and evaluate them first hand before deciding for or against ec2 or really
any other option there.
