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.

Netflix managed to discover that the new instances cut server costs in half.


Keep in mind this is purely research and it may (or may not) have already been implemented as part of their production systems.
