AWS and security

Hi all, I've been assigned to evaluate AWS as an alternative to our current colocation situation and I'm wondering if 
anyone knows of any reports detailing the regularity, or lack thereof, of security incidents at AWS.  I have been 
positing to the "deciders" an analogy of colos being like hot tubs... some you just don't want to go near, and Amazon 
makes me a nervous, so I'm looking for some hard data on rates of viral infestations, DDoS's on the network, script 
kiddy attacks on servers, etc.  Anyone know of any resources for me, or have comments one way or the other?
