The problem is that if use usegalaxy.org/cloudlaunch to restart galaxy, it will
launch to main.g2.bx.psu.edu, where I have no control on the data security and
running queues. Meanwhile, the correspondingly initiated ec2 instance is brand
new and has no previous work records to track with.
In this is the case, it would be great that if galaxy cloudman can be designed
more aws instance friendly in the future.

We'd recommend you not ever stop/start through the aws console -- this is
basically guaranteed to cause problems with your instance. Always use the
cloudman interface (on your ec2 instance -- http://<ec2_instance>/cloud) to
terminate, and then use usegalaxy.org/cloudlaunch to restart it.

Everything will be in /mnt/galaxyData/files (which is symlinked to
/mnt/galaxyTools/galaxy-central/database/files). Note that the filenames will
be by id (like files/000/dataset_001.dat is dataset id 1, etc), and not
particularly accessible in this format without a little extra legwork.
