worked like a charm

Reverse geocoded a few thousand locations (mostly in western Europe) and it worked like a charm. I ssh-ed into the box and adjusted one of the example scripts to process my csv file.
It is cheaper to just launch a small server which gives unthrottled and unlimited api access(I launched a T2.2xlarge) than using their batch web api if you have a small file ($1.3 vs their minimum $20 charge)

It does the job, but could be a bit faster

So, I went ahead and tested with the cheapest possible instance ( r4.2xlarge ). It is not available on any instance with less than 60GB of RAM, unfortunately.

After I started the instance I got a message on port 80 saying: "Temporarily Unavailable :
Churning through startup tasks. Try again in a few minutes."

"A few minutes" turned out to be about 6 minutes. After that it was still slow to respond for another 10 minutes, so I guess the "churning" was not yet complete.

It did perform reasonably well afterwards on my test suite for both Reverse and Forward geocoding. My test suite contains worldwide locations, with the majority in Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.

As to the quality of the results, they were good. My only reason for the three stars is the slow time it took for the machine to get off the groud and running (about 20 minutes including the "churning" time), and also the fact that it is not available on cheaper instance types.
