Ok.. never used AWS, actually, I didn't know S3 holds the information. I guess 
I will have to read some how-to

Long term though we plan to move dataset storage over to S3 as well.

Mmm... I've just had a chat with an AWS engineer, he told me that every 
operation on S3-stored data goes through a download/upload process... isn't 
that a PITA for data analysis? I guess S3 is for "static"  data

EBS has limits, S3 is more durable and scalable.

Which limits (in addition to the 1 Tb size)? I know these are not 
Galaxy-related questions but you are the best people I can ask :-)
