Re: [Condor-users] Condor with Ec2

Hi William,

I for one am interested in more details of your aproach.

Getting our Condor cluster to dynamicly expand into EC2 space has been
in my queue for a while, and may finally be getting back to the top.

My thoughts such as they've been is to have an external agent that
watches the queue and determines (through magic?) when new AMIs should
be spawned ( i'm thinking shutdown logic should probably live on the
AMI so it's tied to the billing cycle ), with the AMI mostly a generic
resource like our other cluster nodes (using GCB for communication).
