I persist my data on S3 via EBS (Elastic Block Store), which allows 
me to mount a virtual S3 volume in the filesystem of the EC2 virtual 
server.  So nothing is lost, even if I terminate my instance (to 
stop paying for it over an idle weekend, or something, if I chose)
or if the Amazon server hosting my virtual server crashes.  At ten 
cents per GB per month, I'm paying only an extra $3.00/month to 
reserve 30GB of storage for this purpose.

The details of how to set it up are also given in my cloud computing 
tip series.  See:
