I found this example of how to push a branch to Git in the GitHub documentation.
git push <remote_repository_name> <branch_name>
git push origin master
Execute this from the base of your local repository. This pushes your local commits to the TOT.

The Amazon Web Services blog has a good post on how to setup an EBS volume using ElasticFox:
Amazon EBS (Elastic Block Store) – Bring Us Your Data
I do not see a way to schedule snapshots through the UI so, you may have to write a script to accomplish this feat.
Once you have created your EBS volume you still have to mount the new device. First add the following line to /etc/fstab:
/dev/YOUR_DEVICE_NAME /data ext3 defaults 0 0
/dev/sde /data ext3 defaults 0 0
Next, you need to format the device. This is accomplished by executing:
This post assumes you are using the ext3 filesystem. Next, you need to mount the device. This is done by issuing:
mount -t ext3 /dev/YOUR_DEVICE_NAME /DIRECTORY_TO_MOUNT_IN
mount -t ext3 /dev/sde /data
After you mount the device you should be good to go. If possible, reboot your instance to make sure the process mounted properly on a restart.

If you are looking for a simple GUI for Amazon’s S3 servcie, there is a pretty good (free) browser plugin product available for Firefox:
S3 Firefox Organizer
Warning: The author of the product states very clearly that he is not responsible for deleted files. He also mentions that he may not continue to maintain the application. Of course, you can still access your files in S3 with another client if he decides to stop working on this free app.
