Has anybody used the EC2 Ephemeral drives as a location for their TEMPDB databases?

Normally I use a standard volume but these drives are supposedly faster for TEMPDB -- but are volatile of course which should not be an issue for the TEMPDB as long as it is put in the root of the drive and not a folder (as the folder will not get re-created when the machine restarts).

thanks

I am interested to hear what your experience is if you do this.

We have decided to always use EC2 volumes, but have not experimented with using the instance storage for tempdb.
