EC3 (Elastic Cloud Computing Cluster) is a tool to deploy virtual elastic clusters over multi-clouds. It is a web tool that facilitates the access to Cloud computing platforms to non-experienced users. A virtual cluster can be deployed with a few clicks. It maintains the “traditional” work environment: clusters configured with a LRMS (SLURM, SGE, Kubernetes, etc.) and scientific applications (Galaxy, NAMD, etc.).
EC3 provides automated elasticity management. Working nodes are added or removed depending on the workload of the cluster without any user intervention and it supports a wide range of cloud providers (public, federated and on-premises) including EGI FedCloud.
The webinar will introduce the key features of EC3, particularly:
- Facilitates the access to Cloud computing platforms to non-experienced users.
- Maintains the "traditional" work environment: clusters configured with a Local Resource Management System (LRMS) and scientific applications.
- Deploy clusters with a few clicks in a web portal.
- Self managed cluster elasticity based on workload without any user intervention.
