It depends on the instance you are using. id.myopenlink.net is running 
on a small AMI instance.
Also, there are many ways of working with it, but note the UI is not the 
best, so this is where there is an end-user fail, naturally.

You can work RESTfully with any ODS instance etc..

Let me know you workflow pattern and then I can point you to alternative 
instances. I can also consider making one dedicated to these tasks.

I have no problem making a instance dedicated to RWW and WebID folks. I 
just need it to me owned by someone other than myself due to my time 
constraints.
