Provisioning new resources to counteract failures or cater to increasing demand requires constant attention and is a repetitive task that can be automated. Nimbus Phantom monitors the health and happiness of your resources and automatically provisions and configures new ones based on demand.
This guide will help you configure and use Phantom. This service dynamically scales and preserves VMs for you. Phantom is available on the FutureGrid infrastucture allowing users to scale VMs that are running on the many clouds of FutureGrid as well as EC2.
If you have any questions about Phantom, please join the nimbus-phantom mailing list.
