Comment(by runa):

 Replying to [comment:2 runa]:
 > The micro instance for Amazon EC2 is the cheapest instance type to get,
 probably because it doesn't have proper storage. In addition, any data on
 the ephemeral storage of a micro instance will be lost when the instance
 is stopped. This includes any data created or generated by Tor since the
 process started. Using a small instance, which has proper storage, will
 cost a lot more per month (and then you'll have the costs of running a
 bridge on top of it all).

 I take that back. Tor will do just fine. You will need to restart Tor
 after stopping and starting the EC2 instance, but the torrc file, log file
 and everything else will still be on there.
