#10282 closed defect (wontfix)

Free tier for Amazon EC2 exceeded because of outdated instructions on Torcloud setup page

According to the instructions at there is no change necessary in the size of the storage used for the Tor cloud instance. If following the current instructions, Amazon creates an EC2 instance with 1 TBit storage which by far exceeds the maximum free tier storage. The default 1 TBit storage is billed at 36 USD per month, even though the torcloud instance only requires 615 MB according to the current (outdated) screenshots on the Tor cloud setup page.

I suggest someone updates the screenshots to make clear what the correct storage volume size of the tor cloud instance should be in order to remain within the free tier.

Tor cloud is discontinued. This is a very specific bug to keep around and all instructions would likely need to be reviewed anyway as part of any revival.
