Software Tools for Academics and Researchers (342652561657)
The Software Tools for Academics and Researchers (STAR) program at MIT seeks to bridge the divide between scientific research and the classroom. All STAR cloud images have been designed to work with the StarCluster project - an open source cluster-computing toolkit for Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
StarCluster is designed to help automate and simplify the process of building, configuring, and managing clusters of virtual machines on Amazon’s EC2 cloud. It allows anyone to easily create a cluster computing environment in the cloud suited for distributed and parallel computing applications and systems.
