Ephemeral storage is not mounted by default on EBS-backed instances. This can be enabled at boot time (only) by providing the "-b" option to ec2-run-instances or the BlockDeviceMapping parameter to the RunInstances API:

ec2-run-instances ami-b232d0db -b /dev/sdb=ephemeral0

I can't find a way to enable this in ElasticFox right now.
