Cloud Compute Cannon (CCC) is a stack that provides an HTTP API for running arbitrary compute jobs that run in docker containers.
The stack runs locally or in AWS (other compute providers coming soon).
Cloud Compute Cannon allows you to create a server (that scales) that provides a REST API that allows callers to run any docker image.
This means that the Cloud-Compute-Cannon (CCC) server allow you to run anything on your server: Python scripts, R statistics analysis, deep learning algorithms, C++ simulations
Cloud Compute Cannon is a tool aimed at scientists and more general users who want to use cheap cloud providers (such as Amazon) to perform large scale computes (number crunching). It aims to lower some of the biggest barriers and learning curves in getting data and custom code running on distributed cloud infrastructure. It can be run both as a command-line tool, or as a server for integrating into other tools via a REST API/websockets.
- Simulating molecular dynamics
- Numerical simulations, data crunching
- Server infrastructure for scalable computation
Cloud Compute Cannon is designed to do one thing well: run docker-based compute jobs on any cloud provider (or your local machine) reliably, with a minimum or user intervention, and scale machines up and down as needed. Its feature set is purposefully limited, it is designed to be used standalone, or as a component in more complex tools, rather than be extended itself.
