This page is kept for reference only. The work was summarized in a CHEP talk: Stealth Cloud: How not to waste CPU during grid to cloud transitions

The goal is to run an ARC-CE pretending to be a run-of-the-mill grid node while using it to submit jobs to the GridPP cloud. (We use ARC rather than CREAM as it has built in support for Condor.)

We aim to achieve this by using the (Condor) Submit module of a glideinWMS as the batch system and then channeling the jobs via the glideinWMS to the gridpp cloud.
