Create elastic virtual clusters in the EGI Cloud with the EC3/IM

When: 
Wednesday, July 1, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00
Description: 

During this webinar we will show you how the IM framework can be used through the Elastic Cloud Computer Cluster (EC3) portal to create elastic virtual clusters on top of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Clouds. The virtual clusters created by EC3 are self-managed entities that scale out to a larger number of nodes on demand, up to a maximum size specified by the user. Whenever idle resources are detected, the clusters automatically scale in, according to some predefined policies, in order to cut down the costs in the case of using a public Cloud provider. In this particular webinar the EC3 docker CLI will be used to deploy and operate elastic virtual clusters on the EGI Cloud Federation. 

EC3 has been developed by the Grid and High Performance Computing Group (GRyCAP) at the Instituto de Instrumentación para Imagen Molecular (I3M) from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV).

Learning goal:
