The Grid Computing Competence Center (GC3) is pleased to announce
release 1.0.0 of Elasticluster.

Do you need...

* an Hadoop cluster with preconfigured HDFS ?
* a ready-to-go HPC cluster based on different flavours of workload
  manager like SLURM, SGE, PBS ?
* test distributed filesystems like chep, gluster or pvfs ?

Elasticluster is a Python tool to automate the creation, configuration
and management of clusters of virtual machines hosted on a cloud.  It
can provision clusters on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud EC2 and
compatible ones, like OpenStack.

A video demoes the basic features of Elasticluster setting up a SLURM
compute cluster: http://youtu.be/cR3C7XCSMmA
