Nimbus Auto Scale (Phantom)
In this project we will be creating software that provides VM scaling services to the scientific community.
Discover best practices for highly scalable embarassingly parallel applications using backfill VM techniques.
This has the potential to change how cloud computing is presented to scientists of non-computational disciplines (biology, physics, etc).
Use of FutureGrid
I intend to use the FutureGrid Nimbus and OpenStack clouds.
Scale Of Use
between 4 and 100 cores depending on the experiment in question
