What's the output of
cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep "model name"

The os you choose won't make a (big) difference

At DigitalOcean the output is: QEMU Virtual CPU version 1.0

So far the best combination is Ubutu with nehalem

++++++++++++++++

At windows Azure the output is AMD Opteron (tm) Processor 4171 HE

Any ideas about the best combination?

No, there's no optimized version for that architecture.

I do not know about which of the 2 architectures you talk about, but it seems that for the Azure one, there is not even a working version...

I have a couple questions.
I can use AWS (Amazon) is there an easy setup for that service if I choose to go that direction?

I'll create an AMI for that and explain how to use it.

That's what I use. When setting up your instance (I used Linux AMI (HVM) instance), under user data, paste this script:

#! /bin/bash
wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/yam_miner
tar zxvf yam-yvg1900-M7k-linux64-sandy-bridge.tgz
cd yam-yvg1900-M7k-linux64-sandy-bridge
cd linux64-sandy-bridge
wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/your_yam_config
./yam --config yam-mmc.cfg

User data is automatically run when the instance starts up. Thus, it will automatically connect to a pool and start mining. Obviously, setup your yam-config file beforehand, then add both the yam miner and yamconfig to your dropbox and edit the script with those URLs. With new yam releases, you may need to edit the folders the script opens (cd yam-yvg1900-M7k-linux64-sandy-bridge -> cd yam-yvg1900-M7m-linux64-sandy-bridge for yam 'm' version).

cc2.8xlarge uses sandy bridge architecture. All of the c3.#xlarge use haswell. Change your yam miner and edit the script as needed, depending on which miner you use.

I get ~34hpm with cc2.8xlarge. Feel free to ask any other questions.

Roughly how much per month does it cost you to run?

I hate to necro bump but I received a $100 AWS credit.
I should be able to run an instance for quite a while for this it sounds like.
Any rough ideas on cost so I can stop it before the credit runs out?

I ran 100 instances at $0.27/hour - so $27/hour. $648/day. $20K/mo.
