Subject [hudson] Slave on EC2?
Date Thu, 16 Dec 2010 07:13:16 GMT

Despite various hickups along the way, the new Hudson master and the
extra solaris slave we got from the old master seem to have gone a
long way to addressing the chronic capacity problems we had earlier
([1] looks a lot better than it used to). Thus the need for my earlier
idea (for which I also lobbied initial budget approval) of setting up
an extra on-demand slave on EC2 for handling load peaks has mostly
gone away.

So the question is, should I still look at setting up an EC2 slave?
Beyond load balancing, the other reason for running builds in the
cloud is the availability of a wider variety of build environments.
Basically we could provision an on-demand build slave for any
environment for which an AMI exists or can be created. I don't have a
pressing need for that from the projects I work with, but perhaps
others are interested?
