Indeed, see the FAQ entry over at http://tinyurl.com/k8knk

"Q: What happens to my data when a system terminates?

The data stored on a specific instance persists only as long as that
instance is alive. You have several options to persist your data:

   1. Prior to terminating an instance, backup the data to persistent
storage, either over the Internet, or to Amazon S3.
   2. Run a redundant set of systems with replication of the data
between them.

We recommend you should not rely on a single instance to provide
reliability for your data."

I was looking at this service (no I don't have beta access either), and 
from what I understand your environment/data go poof if your instance is

shut down or crashes(!). I agree this will be neat for pure seaside
pumping html, but data persistence might cause some unnecessary
