What automation tools can I use to spinup servers?

The most obvious way is to roll-your-own scripts, and use the AWS API tools.  Such scripts could be written in bash, perl or other language or your choice.  Next option is to use a configuration management and provisioning tool like puppet or better it’s successor Opscode Chef.  You might also look towards a tool like Scalr.  Lastly you can go with a managed solution such as Rightscale.
