ClearCase can run successfully in the AWS Cloud. AWS provides virtual machines and
other services that can be used to run ClearCase servers and clients. AWS EC2
instances support Windows and Linux OS versions that ClearCase also supports so a
complete ClearCase installation using those OS versions can be setup in AWS.
This paper discusses various options for configuring a set of AWS virtual machines so that
ClearCase will perform well. In general, all the ClearCase recommendations
for client and server sizing (for CPUs, memory, disk, network latency, etc.) also apply to AWS
EC2 instances. AWS documentation and tools should be consulted when setting up
ClearCase in AWS in order to meet those recommendations, determine costs, etc.
