(365*24 hours)*0.417USD/hour+5216USD = 8868.92 USD = 6719 EUR/pa max.
for a c3.8xlarge Linux Heavy Utilization Reserved Instance in Oregon running
full throttle all year. And while the manitu server has more cores, Amazons
Intel Xeon E5-2680 v2 is more that twice as fast per thread than the Opterons
6272 on the root-server. Actually, amazons offer is already breaking the
front-up cost even after ~6 months -- and we save costs should there be
downtimes for any reason.
As such, I seems to me a reserved ec2 instance is still the way to go ...
 I should know, I have those Opterons in Big Bertha.
