I'm looking for architectural and tactical steps documents to configure an EC2 instance as a compute node. I would like to hear if this is something that you have attempted, if so any gotchas and things to watch out. If you have any links to related documents its greatly appropriated.

You can't run KVM or Xen on top of EC2. I know that openstack can work with LXC which can be run on EC2, but I didn't try that. And running VMs on top of VMs (EC2 instances) is bad idea.
