I'm currently using couchdb on ec2. I simply dump it to s3 and then
restore it when I start another instance. It's not the cleanest way
of doing it but it works well for what I'm doing.

BUT ...

Amazon have just released "Elastic Block Store" which means you can
attach a persistent block storage device your instance. So you can
put your couchdb storage on this partition and it will be persisted
from instance to instance. This makes me *very* happy!
