SGE on Amazon EC2 is pretty trivial, people have been doing it for a 
long time. I've demoed self-organizing SGE clusters in EC2 a few times 
but my AMIs are now pretty old. If you google around on the topic you'll 
find some talk and presentation materials that I and others have put online.

The short answer is that there are no showstopping technical issues on 
AWS/EC2 that are specific to SGE, you just have to script and engineer 
around the odd internal networking and deal with the fact that nodes can 
be transient -- same as you would for any other thing in AWS.
