IGS has been working to get the DIAG up and running. Â One portion of the DIAG is a cloud implementation using Nimbus. Â This week we fired off our first big test on the DIAG, a pretty massive BLAST run. Â The platform is still in testing but CloVR-Search ran just as expected. Â The pipeline automatically scaled to the full 32 instances available.
DIAG is a free academic cluster that will include an EC2-like CloudÂ environment thanks to the Nimbus software. Â The CloVR virtual machineÂ is designed to be portable across clouds and has been run on AmazonÂ EC2, Argonne Magellan, and the DIAG.
Here is a screen shot from Ganglia:
Here is a screen shot showing the day view. Â You can see the autoscaling, it is the red line in the top left graph.
