An interesting announcement from PiCloud who is a cloud computing startup, but focused on python (as the name suggests). They basically have created a cloud library (or in R lingo – a package) that enables you to call cloud power sitting from the desktop interface itself. This announcement is for multiple IP addresses. Real parallel processing or just a quick trick in technical jargon- you decide!
s1 cores are comparable in performance to c1 cores with one extra trick up their sleeve: each job running in parallel will have a different IP.
Why is this important?
Using unique IPs is necessary to minimize the automated throttling most sites will impose when seeing fast, repeated access from a single IP.
How do I use it?
If you’re already using our c1 cores, all you’ll need to do is set the
Why don’t other cores have individual IPs?
For other core types, such as c2, multiple cores may be running on a single machine that is assigned only a single IP address. When using s1 cores, you’re guaranteed that each core sits on a different machine.
