By allowing users to assign self selected names to all resources, EC2Tasks hides the complexity of the fluid and by its very definition the dynamic nature of the on-demand cloud resources from its end users, making the target deployment platform appear just like its traditional dedicated counterpart. This unique ability makes it easy for everyone to seamlessly integrate EC2 into their existing processes thereby opening the doors to lowered costs, improved fault tolerance & virtually unlimited scalability. More specifically, EC2Tasks has been designed with the following goals in mind:

  • Declarative, cross-platform deployment
  • Script reuse across multiple enviroments
  • Support for rapid prototyping and proof of concept designs
  • A familiar environment with very little learning curve
  • Blocking resource allocation - Script pauses until the resource is available
  • Opaque EC2 identifiers - end users work with self assigned names/ids
  • Catalog for all EC2 resources for multi invocation scenarios
  • Comprehensive online documentation
