  1. PBS in the Cloud

    Hello I am designing a PBS solution in the Cloud and have a queston; Can you automatically provision and then destroy nodes as and when the workload arrives and departs? I was thinking of building an image with the client being pre-configured pointing at the IP of the PBS server and then you could just increase the number of nodes in the cluster and then decrease when the work drops off. This will bring real cost savings to the solution as I'm sure you can appreciate. I see in the PBS Professional webpage it says you can monitor, shutdown and restart machines as an when required but I'm not sure if this is slightly more complex.
