      Description

      REEF's abstraction is portable to IaaS clouds like AWS EC2, Azure VMs and the Google Cloud. We'd run each Evaluator on a VM, and the resource request / response would be forwarded to and from the IaaS cloud's API.

      A rough idea of the approach would be:

      • The Client gets the credentials for the IaaS account and a Driver submission. It then acquires a VM from the IaaS provider and launches the Driver on there.
      • The Driver runs in a VM and launches Evaluators on that VM until it is "full". At that point (and up to a policy), it acquires an additional VM and starts launching containers there. This could, for example, be done with the SSH runtime.

        Hi,
        I'm interested in working on REEF for the GSoC2016.
        I've also left a comment on REEF-1123, and this issue seems like it's somewhat in parallel with the standalone development, only that it's devoted in accessing IaaS clouds. I'll be interested in this issue as well.
        Thanks,
