Neurohackweek at the eScience Institute using AWS


The purpose of this page is to describe a particular hackathon event – one concerned with neuroscience – in relation to cloud computing. We describe provisioning of accounts, providing participant access, monitoring resources and evaluating total cost. The underlying idea is a reversal of the usual cloud scalability model, to wit: The public cloud is a natural environment for supporting a burst in the number of available scientists.
