We are running a bunch of EnergyPlus simulations on Amazon Web Services and only care about the output variable CSV and EIO output files. We don't want to pay for storage for the other output files generated. Is there an easy way in the IDF to specify saving only those two output files?

If you remove all other Output:* objects (beside Output:Variable), you can reduce the number of outputs, but you'll still get about 10 extras. Beyond that, you'll have to modify the run scripts that are driving the remote simulations to delete the unwanted files.
