Begins with a Management Instance that is launched in your own AWS account.
A simple but powerful Web-UI is then used to create a base HPC environment with Scheduler, Login instance and storage that you choose.
After the HPC environment is created you can submit Torque(PBS) or Slurm jobs through CCQ, a meta-scheduler that is delivered with CloudyCluster.
Once submitted, CCQ inspects the job and instantiates the instances dynamically and once ready releases the job to Torque(PBS) or Slurm to process the job.
When all the jobs for that instance type are complete, CCQ tears down the instances before the billing cycle is complete, so you only pay for the runtime you need.
