Condor Bursting

Finally addressing a long-term problem. . .

Problem:
  • User demand is not uniform — e.g., conference/publication deadlines.
Solution:
  • Burst HPC cluster into AWS Spot Market? Not a good match.
  • Condor:
    • Aggregate compute resource wherever we can find it.
    • Natural match for "spare" cycles in AWS, Azure, etc. —
      • cost-effective.
    • Almost invisible to users!
