And by "ship" they mean put in a box and Fedex... HOWEVER, according to the AWS architect guy that taught an AWS 101 class in Herndon last week, since the Ashburn, Va. AWS datacenter is so close, you could probably make arrangements to drop it off if you didn't want to ship the storage (due to cost or fear of being lost/stolen). No guarantee he wasn't full of it, but may be worth investigating if interested.
I *don't* work for Amazon but recently started using AWS for $workstuff.
