Cloud Folding

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
...Bored

How do you fold in the cloud on multiple cores with out reserving an entire server? What service are people using (if any)? How are you managing the server (can you get on with RDP and just go to town)?

Update:
So anyway, here's where I've gotten.

Once you build the instance and configure it, you login with SSH and you're at teh command line (if you configured a linux instance). To answer my first question you can manage with RDP if you configure a Windows instance. Windows is far more expensive and since I'm trying this one on a EC2 free setup you have to use a micro which limits you to linux. Sucks for me because I'm a Windows Server admin and I suck at linux. So I'll keep bashing my way through this until I get the linux console running and post back. The Clustercorp guys have pulled this off, and had it managed well... I wish they had some type of walkthrough to get up and running.

They did say you need to use FAH504_Linux.exe to run on the micro, I have the client... now I need to get it on the machine.

You could try using a dropbox account. It would show up as a shared folder on any computer that has it installed with the same account logged in.

You setup an account with them, then you install folding@home on the nodes that you "order".

I wouldn't do this, as it would be fairly expensive, as amazon charges by the CPU/hr. Making a bunch of machines in you basement is a cheaper way to go.

Looking at their prices.
1.16$ an hour for Extra Large High-CPU On-Demand Instances would cost you 27.84$ a day. If you're willing to dish out that kind of money...

Heh? I don't care about keeping the data up there... I want everything up there. I guess cloud computing isn't understood too well.

What I'm asking is how do I manage the server and install folding at home once I buy the time?

That is, you don't understand it very well? They create a virtual system for you, maybe even a dedicated machine, and allow you to install whatever applications you need within space and OS constraints. It's all about how much you want to pay.
