There have been a couple of reports of happy users:
There are two main things to be wary of:
1) Physical I/O is not very good, thus how that first system used a RAID0.
2) Reliability of EBS is terrible by database standards; I commented on
this a bit already at
end result is that you must be careful about how you back your data up,
with a continuous streaming backup via WAL shipping being the
recommended approach. I wouldn't deploy into this environment in a
situation where losing a minute or two of transactions in the case of a
EC2/EBS failure would be unacceptable, because that's something that's a
bit more likely to hapen here than on most database hardware.
