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.
