TITLE: StarCluster - High Performance
Computing on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud
SPEAKER: JUSTIN RILEY (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
StarCluster is a utility for creating and managing general purpose
computing clusters hosted on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
StarCluster makes it easy to create a traditional computing cluster used
in research labs or for general purpose parallel and distributed computing
applications in the cloud. All that's needed to get started with your own
computing cluster on EC2 is an Amazon AWS account and StarCluster.
Once you've created an AWS account and have StarCluster installed you
create a simple configuration file and execute a single command to launch
the cluster. StarCluster then completely automates the process of
creating a high performance computing cluster on Amazon EC2. This
involves requesting virtual machines from Amazon, configuring the cluster
with Sun Grid Engine, OpenMPI, passwordless SSH, NFS shared /home and /opt
directories, and ~140GB of /scratch space.
