I know it's possible to balance traffic using ELB/EC2 instances but is there any way to distribute CPU calculations over a cluster of instances.
I'm wanting to process lots of video/audio using ffmpeg, but if the server gets too slow, I'd like to be able to spawn another instance with the same setup to take some of the load from the main server. Think of it as a mini processing farm
Is what I'm looking to do possible with amazon, if it is, what should I be looking for in terms of documentation and AWS services? Thanks
