HPC in the cloud with StarCluster

Cluster in the Cloud

Article from Issue 147/2013

Some changes at Amazon require an update to the StarCluster article.

An astute reader pointed out that the code in the Star-Cluster article (Linux Magazine issue 144, pp. 16-20) is outdated. The material here replaces the “Build Log” box on page 19 and Listing 10 on page 20. Listing 11 is new. References to ami-d3ce7bba become ami-d60185bf; starcluster-base-scientific-linux-6.2-x86_64-06 becomes -6.2-x86_64-10. Download the code from Linux Pro Magazine online.
