I worked on a Docker cluster (not a Grid Engine / Open Grid
Scheduler / StarCluster installation) late last year. Keep in mind that
Docker is designed to run just one single application, and thus each Docker
image is supposed to contain one application.

If all you want is to run Docker inside EC2 and have *a* (simple) scheduler
that can distribute your jobs, you may want to look into the Amazon EC2
Container Service:

(ECS itself is free, you only need to pay for your EC2 resource usage! And
yes, it is in beta, but AWS reacts quickly to all customers who wanted to
use the service.)
