AWS is for top 5%/1% stores, it is high cost and low performance, there are various reasons why companies like this environent but you need a high end architecture to make the most of it. If you want more value you have mid-range which is Rackspace, or low cost high performance which is Digital Ocean. We license our architecture which runs on all these platforms, however unless you are spending $100s/mth (and this is low) you will not get any value out of AWS. You can use the bitnami Magento AMI, but expect over 5s page loads with it - you need sub 3s otherwise you lose 56% of visitors. –  Serpyre Feb 21 at 22:02

For a good starting point I recommend taking a look at a combination of the following tools:

  1. Vagrant
  2. Puppet
  3. PuPHPet - this is a GUI interface for configuring the above two tools. It's ridiculously easy to use.

Using the above links you can configure your AWS box and spin one up in no time.

Note: If you are serious about running a Magento site on AWS you need to talk to a professional AWS partner. In Australia we have companies like Bulletproof, a quick Google search will be able to help you find someone similar in your location.
