I think what he is trying to illustrate is that you ultimately have control over vendor-neutral solutions. Amazon's Elastic Load Balancer utilizes Amazon's Elastic Block Storage system, by using ELB you necessarily increase the complexity of your traffic management solution. If you can quickly deploy a software load balancer including state to an ephemeral node with configuration management then you can control how long it takes to recover and your no longer have tight coupling with EBS.
