moving ec2 instance to s3?

Hi, I have configured my instance at amazon ec2. Is it somehow possible to move configured ami to s3? Is it possible to run apache server on s3 or ebs?

S3 is not a platform to run servers on. It is a storage system.
Your server instance can be copied to a private AMI and stored on S3.
S3 is a web storage, accessed via HTTP. S3 does not behave like a normal, persistent hard disk. Your server instance does not mount a drive to S3. If you need a persistent hard disk that stores your data implicitly, you use EBS.

Because S3 uses HTTP/HTTPS, it can be used to host and serve STATIC web sites, like Apache or IIS. No server side code, no php, no asp, no java, just static content like html, javascript, images, flash etc.

So, if your instance is used to host an apache server that delivers ONLY static content, you can drop it and use S3 instead.
