Yes, the numbers I posted are for the small instance. Unfortunately I
tried a Large instance and got the same numbers (but the OS remained
the same 32 bit OS)

Right, this is a virtualized environment, but the disk performance on
an EC2 instance is at least 40 MB/sec. Is it possible at that speed
for the disk to be the limiting factor? I've read that files read from
disk are cached in the kernel cache, but I have no clue...

I'm using the same concurrency used in the superjared.com blog entry,
which I'm using as my baseline.
