>> Recommend several things:
>> * Open a ticket on http://knowledgeforge.net/okfn/tasks for this migration
>> * Have a hot standby postgresql on eu4, allocate an "elastic IP" for

"$0.01 per GB in/out – If you choose to communicate using your Public or Elastic IP address or Elastic Load Balancer inside of the Amazon EC2 network, you’ll pay Regional Data Transfer rates even if the instances are in the same Availability Zone. For data transfer within the same Availability Zone, you can easily avoid this charge (and get better network performance) by using your private IP whenever possible."
Lets keep it internal, then.
