I have only one small datapoint.  I ran an EC2 microinstance with 
Asterisk and a dozen offboard users.  The only problem I had was SIP 
wasn't dealing well with the Elastic IP one-to-one NAT that Amazon uses. 
  I had the usual Asterisk/NAT issues of one-way audio.  I eventually 
moved from Amazon to Linode to get away from the NAT issues.  Once I did 
that, everything worked fine, but again it was only a dozen users.
