AWS Advice on using WHM/cPanel

Currently we are running on a dedicated server with Liquid Web.  The server is a Centos box running WHM/cPanel.  So far it's worked great for us, but I've been told we need to move to an AWS setup.  While testing their EC2 instances out I see there is an option where I can spin up a box running WHM/cPanel.

I've experimented with both a barebones AWS server and the WHM/cPanel options.  I'm more comfortable using WHM/cPanel vs all command line.  

My question is there any reason or disadvantages to using WHM/cPanel on these boxes?  I've read some online and seems some people say not to, but I'm really not sure why.

WHM/cPanel make some things simpler for non sysadmins, but you "pay" for it in CPU and memory.

AWS is not always the most cost effective option for a single VM with cPanel
