Hi Jeff

Are you aware of any challenges of hosting it on AWS? It will help me to 
work out alternate plan. Is there any recommendation? Should I split it 
to multiple instances and balance traffic across multiple small server 
instances? I can use Kamailio to balance traffic.

I see many posts referring to AWS deployment. Please help me to choose 
AWS server instance.

*Thanks & Regards,*
