How do I migrate my server account to a cloud account?
The answer to your question is call FM tech support. They spent a few hours with me while making the full installation. I also purchased a t2.Large Instance with 8GB memory plus two volumes for storage. 30GB for system and 40GB for data and backups. If you are new to AWS, I recommend paying for Developer support. So far so good. Keep in mind that networking speeds will suffer as compared to local ethernet.
I decided to not go with the FMCloud server services as I was told that the user licenses and server license we currently have are not useable with that cloud system. (Tip: Windows Server)
I would be interested to hear from others who are using AWS to host their FMS.

The AWS Marketplace as a FileMaker Cloud BYOL option that allows you to convert. But consider it carefully; if you don't currently have your license as "filemaker licensing for teams" (FLT), using the BYOL conversion will convert to FLT. You may or may not want that.
wimdecorte is correct and you will be converted to FLT. Be careful.
