Use a Cluster Workflow to Create Clusters on a Cloud Platform

Use a Cluster Workflow to Create Clusters on a Cloud Platform

You can create a workflow in the Developer tool that creates a cluster on a cloud platform and runs Mapping tasks and other tasks.
A cluster workflow contains a Create Cluster task that has configuration properties for a cluster and a reference to cloud provisioning and Hadoop connections.
When you deploy and run a cluster workflow, it creates a cluster on a cloud platform and runs Mapping tasks and other tasks on the cluster.
You can optionally include a Delete Cluster task that terminates the cluster when workflow tasks are complete. A cluster that is created and then terminated is called an ephemeral cluster.
