This is currently true, though we're hoping to mirror to other regions soon.

You are correct that the maximum EBS volume size is 1TB. We have an S3
object store in development (beta-ish, though some are already using it)
that will replace the primary EBS-based storage as the default cloud galaxy
object store using (free) instance ephemeral storage for the lifespan of a
cluster, having all datasets persisted to S3 for the long term. This is on
my roadmap to do this year, if the time-frame is useful.

Sure, you can do this using a worker post start script configured for your
cluster. See 'worker_post_start_script_url' at
