I'd bet I could squeeze a lot more performance from that m1.large. Yea I know I have not seen the config. ;)
As for load balancing on AWS I've done it using RDS in the back end as well as MySQL on one box serving as much as 4 load balanced web servers. These we not IPB setups.
I did however test load balancing for a tiny forum I run...
Where you'll have a problem is with the front end, sessions isn't an issues but for me it was uploading attachments and syncing them betweenall for servers or even having attachment dealt with be one server all together.
Since I use cloudfront for all images its really not much (as much) saving to have them split between servers.
Let me know what you choose. Or see my sig if you'd like my help.

Quick question for staff and/or IPS mods. I'm a Linux Systems Administrator and I've worked with 100's of websites over the last 10 years including forums to optimize their setup from the server-level upwards.
My question, is it allowed to post a link to my Elance profile here in the support forums?
I recently received a PM (have not responded) regarding tuning IP.Board. Wondered if it was against the rules to link to my paid services and portfolio via my Elance.com profile?
I'm now testing nginx cache (fastcgi) with some great results and with less memory than with varnish.
At this point it's working like varnish but without forcing purging. I've set cache_valid to 15m.
I'll open a new topic, since this one is for varnish
