The two biggest considerations with Amazon over a private hosting company are going to be connectivity and connectivity. With Amazon you will be up almost 100% of the time but they are located in Virginia (mainly) so there is a bit of extra latency there depending on your broker.
Another thing, if you can swing W7 vs. Server 2008, Backblaze is cheap for a basic backup (unlimited space) but they only work with W7 right now as Server OS is seen as something enterprise.
