The ability to manage, deploy agents on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) when more are required (i.e. when builds are piling up) will enable the ability to have more servers cost efectively and improve build throughput. This is already implemented in competing CI servers such as Bamboo. In addition to the ability to bring up and tear down elastic server instances, you could have it bid on spot prices to improve the cost of running new servers.
