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 serverbeach.com 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.
