[sf-perl] episodic cloud-based computation?

I have a prospective need for some episodic cloud-based
computation.  For example, I might need one or two dozen
Linux instances for about two seconds each, but not need
them (at least initially) more than a few times per day.

My plan is to use Chef to set things up, so I should be
pretty flexible about vendors, etc.  Given all of this,
what cloud providers are likely to be able to give me a
good deal for keeping my instances around and running
them at need?
