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.

This guy doesn't want to hear about Erlang for all his

pretty good 'getting started' post:
All in all, a fair amount of buzz.
