[asterisk-users] Amazon, Asterisk and reliability beyond a hobby system?

Just checking one more time to see if anyone has an opinion on this. I am primarily interested in using a cloud type setup such as Amazon AWS for the redundancy, easy backup and recovery options. It's not about price but the idea that it will be very hard for a single piece of hardware to ruin my day.

Subject: [asterisk-users] Amazon,	Asterisk and reliability beyond a hobby system?

Took me a while but I have finally embraced cloud computing and all the benefits.
The only thing I have yet to feel comfortable about putting in the cloud is real live Asterisk boxes to be used in production. I know it's being done because as far as I know Twilio is using Amazon for their Asterisk boxes.
I have read all the fun articles on building hobby type systems and that's all great.
What I really need to hear is from those that have deployed Asterisk in Amazon or Digital Ocean and how many simultaneous calls they are pushing through it and what the call quality and reliability has been.
Right now I am still using dedicated hardware but I could become much more redundant and scale much faster using Amazon or Digital Ocean.
Thanks in advance for any information from those that have already been down this road...
