Windows AMIs as cluster nodes?
This archive was generated by
I have recently started looking at AWS for our parallel/distributed
processing needs and came across Starcluster and would very much like to
use it. However, we are a Windows shop and do our processing on Windows
I've installed Starcluster on Win 7 and have run the demo smoothly.
The big question now - is it feasible to create a Windows AMI that
Starcluster can use and build a cluster with? And if so, what does the
Windows AMI need? I've gotten as far as creating a Windows instance with
passwordless SSH server and the "root" user and I can get SC to connect to
it. My understanding is that I now have to configure Sun Grid Engine
queuing system (open-source edition), the network file system, and OpenMPI.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it doable?
