Zerg – an instance per request demo

Our vision is that to achieve true elasticity new instances should be spawned for each incoming request. The computing infrastructure should be woven on demand, after the request is received.

We have put together a small demo to demonstrate that a new-instance-per-request approach is feasible. Clicking a button below will bring you to a web page rendered by a freshly spawned Erlang on Xen instance.

The complete source code of the demo application can be found here and here.
