I've been running a WordPress appliance on an EC2 micro instance for a few months now.
I've got a few sites on there, all extremely low load- CPU/Memory etc. pretty much never spike according to the charts available in Turnkey Hub.
That said, I am using NewRelic monitoring which about once a day emails me to say the site is not responding in a timely manner. Further more, to transfer a 1.8mb site (most of that is a few large banner images) it takes about 13seconds which feels a little slow to me.
I've already put CloudFlare in place but it doesn't seem to be making much of a difference.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can improve the performance of the appliance?
