comment Feasiblity to host Tor Hidden Service in Amazon EC2?
Incidentally, I have no argument with the assertion that it would be, at the very least, an implicit violation. What I wasn't sure of was whether they had, somewhere, explicitly and specifically forbidden it.

"their terms of service prohibit exit nodes from being run" ... could we get a pull quote and a link to back up this claim?

comment CloudFront download speed in Europe: expected vs. reportable
If you are not the CloudFront customer, I don't think it matters at this point -- your issue is with the service whose customer you are, not with whatever infrastructure provider they are using. As an end-user, you don't have the standing to report an apparent issue to an intermediate provider -- that is a rule of standard business practice. It is up to the service you have a relationship with to validate your trouble report and relay it upstream if they consider it to be an issue. You lack the visibility to determine upon whose side the limitation is being applied, if there is one.

comment Need to associate my domain name with amazon ec2 instance without elastic IP
i don't want to go for any dedicated IP ... You do realize that if your instance I running all the time, there is no charge for an Elastic IP, and if not, it will only cost you $0.005 to leave the address allocated for each hour the instance isn't running.

comment How to copy a .zip from within a .tar to a given location without extracting entire .tar using AWS S3 CLI
Tar files don't include file positions in the file header -- they are streams, and have to be scanned. In fact, the same file can appear more than once within a given tar file so technically they have to be scanned all the way to the end so that you get the last file of that path+name, which is usually what you want. The answer below will get the file you want, but the entire tar will still be read, even if it isn't extracted.

comment Backup website running on Ubuntu / JBoss / MySQL
Your second best bet is, once you come up with an action plan, actually test it now by redeploying the site now -- not later on a different machine, and thoroughly test it. If it tests out okay, you succeeded. If it doesn't, then you missed something. Capturing the output of dpkg --list will potentially help you identify what the new machine needs to have installed as far as dependencies.

comment Let's Encrypt with Amazon S3
You didn't ask anything about how to use the service offered by Let's Encrypt. Your question appears to ask how to use what they provide (SSL certificates) with S3... which can't be done directly.

comment Is Amazon Glacier appropriate for archiving Digital Media content?
I agree with @Ramhound's assessment in light of the use of the word "ideal" in the question. My answer was premised on a looser interpretation of the question as "is Glacier appropriate," which I do see as not quite such a subjective, opinion-based question, and, in context, appears to be the real gist of what's being asked. And, you can load up to 50TB using the "bandwidth" of a FedEx truck using Amazon Snowball.

comment Is Amazon Glacier appropriate for archiving Digital Media content?
Note that the storage rate per gigabyte per month is actually $0.007 -- which is 0.007 dollars per month, not 0.007 cents (the Glacier price is 0.7 cents... 0.007 cents would actually be $0.00007).

comment Geo-balanced (static) website hosting
I completely forgot about your content localization requirement. If enabled, CloudFront inserts a header, CloudFront-Viewer-Country, that you could use for localization. If the value of the header is, say, US, it will cache that response against that specific value, i.e., only for users who also resolve as US -- but will send a new request to the origin if any not previously seen value is there. See my test site at cloudfront.sqlbot.net. (View the page source to see the request headers sent by CloudFront). You could use that to change the content or to redirect to /us/.
