Google and some other cloud providers use live migration for its internal needs, for example for hardware maintenance, but none of them provides live migration from private to public cloud. Jelastic introduced live migration for end users with help of containers technology. It can be installed on top of many IaaS providers (public or private) or directly ...

For a reasonably quick to get running option you could take a look at the various python based systems to allow remote execution of code on other machines, there is quite a list here. I would strongly suggest reading some material on Distributed Computing as it is a big subject and there is both a science and an art to structuring problems so that they can ...

It is a bit hard to say what particular physics/biological processes do you want to model, so I will give a more general recommendation: Wiki page on software for molecular mechanics modeling In particular, I would point you to LAMMPS that is suited for distributed systems and is very popular.

I've been a Linode customer for 15 years now... I have yet to see a reason to change, at least for my own use cases. Edit for clarification - why do I think you should look at linode? You have total control over just about every aspect of each of your virtual machines. You pick the distribution, you install and configure the software and services. If you ...

Nothing wrong with the LAMP stack, but if you are already familiar with that and want something different perhaps using node.js and mongodb As far as hosting goes, Linode now offers a $5/mo plan now... you have full control, so whatever stack you end up using you can configure to your needs and wants.

You might look at a web wiki engine like dokuwiki, written in php, uses ordinary files not a database, available in most Linux distributions, or simple to install from scratch, many interesting plugins (though many not uptodate). You need to have a server like apache. However, it is not very tablet friendly. There is a live demo where you can login as admin ...
