Re: [Condor-users] Condor + EC2

If you are new to Condor, then it can be hard to setup a Condor cluster on EC2.

You may want to see if the open-source StarCluster project from MIT
fits your need:


"StarCluster 0.91 Demo": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vC3lJcPq1FY

Currently, the only scheduler StarCluster supports is Sun Grid Engine
(now called "Open Grid Scheduler" with Oracle), but people are adding
Torque & Condor support. I think it is way easier to setup a cluster
with StarCluster than doing all of them by hand.

And if someone from the Condor project can give the StarCluster
developers a hand in implementing the Condor plugin, then open source
schedulers can all share one single EC2 provisioning layer, and can
easily migrate from job scheduler to scheduler.
