• 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.
