if you want solution out of box - wait for a sge 62u5 with new SDM cloud 
adapter - it brings so called cloud bursting (you have only qmaster 
inhouse, all execs are setup on demand in ec2). with small 
modifications, it will be easy (we did not manage to deliver it as a 
part of 62u5 release, maybe it will be in 62u6) to have ec2 only 
self-scaling cluster  (so even a qmaster will run inside the ec2).
