What are the pitfalls when running WebLogic 11g on AWS?

Hi there,

We would like to deploy a big application which was written in Java EE 5 and would like to take advantage of the automatic scalability of Amazon Web Services.

The plan is to start with as few as 5 servers and than scale it up as the load increases. If the load goes back to normal , then we need to "kill" the unnecessary instances.

How can that be done in a meter of seconds/minutes instead of hours?

I believe the answer may rely on Puppet or Chef.

Has anyone experienced that? Is it even possible?
