G-Eclipse/AWS Cloud in headless mode
API for the Cloud
The g-Eclipse project provides an integrated project view to Grid and Cloud infrastructures. With the help of the created "Grid-Project", the users is able to interact with Grid and Cloud infrastructures. The g-Eclipse framework contains the exemplary implementation for the Amazon Web Services, but the framework is generic to integrate other Cloud infrastructures too.
The architecture of the g-Eclipse framework is designed to be able to run the core of the g-Eclipse framework independent from the UI parts. With the feature, the core g-Eclipse framework provides a generic API for Cloud computing allowing to start and stop remote Cloud instances as well as management of data on the infrastructures.
In this tutorial, we demonstrate the usage of the g-Eclipse framework in headless mode.
