Re: Using Starcluster with micro instances?

Micro instances can only support launching from an EBS based AMI, as t1.micro cannot use the local disk (it is a designed feature, not a bug). Gpucluster works because the instance type can use the disk local to the node.

Can you check the image and see if it is EBS-based or S3-based??
