I do write my python crawlers and collect data using mysql databases and sometime postgres, but I really want to move to EC2 where I can run more instances and setup more row bust crawling. What I don't know is where to start especially with EC2 and setting up EC2 to do such a task. I search Google for tutorials but was not able to find any I hope this question will become a repository for EC2 with Crawling.

setting up EC2 is actually quite easy. You are allowed to import an image if you have a compatible one, or deploy an image (typically Ubuntu I hear). You can then setup your environment from there.
