This is hypothetical, at this point, but the app would be running in

Our initial thought was to store the blobs in EBS along with the
file-storage data file, but we've been hearing horror stories about
EBS.  Also, it appears that you only pay for what you use in S3, while
with EBS, we'd end up needing to have some excess space for growth
between times that we reallocate space, this making S3 more cost
competative that it first appeared.
