For a good starting point I recommend taking a look at a combination of the following tools:
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.
We have created a Magento AMI on AWS you can use the pre-configured image. Configuration: Magento 2.0.7 Php 7.0.7 with all required extension. HTTPd 2.4 Already configured cron jobs for Magento2
It might be late, but for somoone reference....We have recently hosted magento on AWS....We used pre-configured image provided by bitnami and it worked well....
Rackspace is quickly becoming an AWS provider. [I know as we've migrated and so many of my customers. Reduced our billing by more than 50%.] Don't get me wrong, Rackspace is very decent, mostly because of their excellent customer support, but the main disadvantage is cost.
For example, for a proper starting point for Magento, you'll need a dev server and a prod server, and use GIT for source control. [the basics]
Even in a LAMP setup, you can stop your dev EC2 instance when not in use! That is huge cause you can't do that on Rackspace and many other hosting providers. Trust me, creating a sizeable image in Rackspace can take more than an hour.
For a turnkey AMI for Magento, aMi STACX is excellent for a small footprint t-small - t-large, Magento CE 2.1.x LAMP, and scores 100% on default theme pingdom tests. We use these and so do our customers. Problems we have encountered with other turnkey AMIs is they customize the install and LAMP paths, causing a lot of issues during in-app upgrades.
Happy e-commerce all :)
