Is there a particular advantage to the Niagara servers with Erlang?  
Is this tried and true or just hypothetical?

How did you figure this out? I looked at and for 250/ 
mo you get a bare server. Do you mean that it starts to become  
expensive as you scale up?

I'm also trying to find a contact at Amazon to get on the EC2 beta.  
For 70/mo per virtual server that would be ideal! Anyone with contacts?

What are the advantages that you see?

You mean 250 + 250 + 250? They do seem to take care of load-balancing  
for you, I think, if you have multiple containers.

	Thanks, Joel
