Elasticity can be seen as the ability of a system to increase or decrease the computing resources allocated in a dynamic and on demand way. Considering its importance, some mechanisms to explore elasticity have been proposed by public providers and by academy. However, these solutions are in-appropriate to provide elasticity for scientific applications or are limited to a specific programming model. In this paper, the authors present cloudine, a platform for development of elastic scientific applications based in simple elasticity primitives.
