Hi Xiandong, 
Yes, it is possible to run a customized Galaxy instance and also use your 
own tools on the cloud but there is a bit of a process. Namely, you will 
need to install the tools by hand, create required EBS volume snapshots, and 
changing some configuration files in your cluster's S3 bucket. I can work on 
a wiki page on how to achieve this over the coming days and guide you 
through the process, if you'd like to proceed with it?

(I've CC'd galaxy-dev mailing list because this is probably something other 
users are interested in as well)
