How to Create On-Demand Clusters in EC2
For a recent project I needed to be able to start on-demand clusters of machines in Amazon EC2. We needed each instance in a cluster to allow SSH and sudo access for all team members and to install and configure the software appropriate for that cluster (“database” node or “testclient” node).
(Tips for improvements are welcome. And not, Star Cluster isn’t what we needed.)
