Could it be this; – Chopper3 Apr 21 '11 at 14:03
If it is EBS backed, it probably is related to that issue. Also, try checking the server log available from the console. – Flashman Apr 21 '11 at 14:37

Contact Amazon support.

In this specific case, as @Chopper3 mentioned, they're experiencing an outage at the moment.
