[clug] Suggestions for hosting a large low-usage database

Hello CLUG,
A few years ago I had a Nectar cloud account that I used to host a web
dashboard connected to a 200GB PostgreSQL database. The dashboard was
intended to very infrequently handle a very small number of users, usually
just one.

Now that I am professional staff at ANU, I am unlikely to succeed in
getting a project up on Nectar. One other option is Amazon ec2.

Does anyone know where I can find help to correctly size the ec2
instances that I would need for a low usage dashboard combined with a 200GB
database? Also, what if I scaled the database size up to 6TB, still with a
very infrequent, very small number of users? Would I need a different
instance type?
All the best, Paul
