As it hasn't been mentioned yet, Amazon released EBS Optimized and Provisioned IOPS a few months ago that vastly improves EBS throughput.

Their new SSD-based instances are supposed to be a lot faster, but has anyone benchmarked these?

My experience with EBS was the the performance was decent most of the time, but would brown out intermittently for reasons beyond your control.
