We're using Amazaon AWS with EC2 and S3 for streamfocus.com, and we are amazed at how well (and fast) it is running. Our Ubuntu server instance is running SBCL Lisp with Portable aserve with Apache providing ssl. So far, it is truly impressive (We launched on Ec2/S3 a week ago - it takes us 3 minutes to fire up another instance if we need to).

We're able to update at anytime with a simple ssh link, a GIT push, and then emacs/slime directly in to the SBCL thread running (after testing on local machines first, of course). We can do complete updates with no interruption in service - a very nice feature)
