PAW is a comprehensive resource provisioning and workflow tool that automates the steps of
dynamically provisioning a large scale cluster environment in the cloud, executing a set of jobs or a custom workflow and, after the jobs have completed, de-provisioning the cluster environment in a single operation. A key characteristic of PAW is that it separates the provisioning of cluster resources in the cloud from the management of scientific workflow on these resources, which enables fine-grained decisions about performance and cost tradeoffs in a commercial cloud environment.
