Instead of mnesia, I have read that SimpleDB is built on Erlang and BDB.
SimpleDB also has a storage limit of 10 GB (temporary to the beta),
which seems higher than what the 32 bit version of mnesia can handle.

Amazon's SimpleDB (apparently built on Erlang/Mnesia)
...

... is garnering a lot of attention, so now Erlang is
even getting into the news mainstream (well, by that I
mean the writers on the site below are basically
analysts/reporters, not techies as such):

old/

Summary: plaintive cries of "It's too weird". The
educational mission isn't over yet by far, it seems.

This guy doesn't want to hear about Erlang for all his
solutions(!), he wants transactions:

Maybe we should tell him about mnesia? And here is a
pretty good 'getting started' post:

All in all, a fair amount of buzz.

Best,
Thomas
