Con Part of large infrastructure
Being part of huge Amazon services infrastructure, EC2 burrows you into bureaucracy of a large company, advertising other Amazon services, and making simple things look complicated.
Con Difficult, awkward to manage your server's resources
They only provide an upgrade path for CPU, RAM, disk. If you wish to downgrade later, you can't, you must rebuild your server from scratch.
Con Horrible support
I opened several tickets, but I didn't got ANY response.
