Along with Dinesh Rajan of the Cooperative Computing Lab at the University of Notre Dame, we have refined our work on MAKER into an elastic application called E-MAKER. This application has been included as a case study in a paper that Dinesh will present at CCGRID 2013. This paper discusses characteristics of elastic applications and guidelines for developing elastic applications. Additionally we present a model of the execution of E-MAKER and suggest methods to utilize such models to maximize resource performance.
