ABSTRACT
<p>Large, virtualized pools of computational resources raise the possibility of a new, advantageous computing paradigm for scientific research. To help achieve this, new tools make the cloud platform behave virtually like a local homogeneous computer cluster, giving users access to high-performance clusters without requiring them to purchase or maintain sophisticated hardware.</p>
