Cluster configuration file - AWS ParallelCluster

Cluster configuration file

AWS ParallelCluster version 3 uses separate configuration files to control the definition of cluster infrastructure and the definition of custom AMIs. All configuration files use YAML 1.1 files. Detailed information for each of these configuration files is linked below. For some example configurations, see https://github.com/aws/aws-parallelcluster/tree/release-3.0/cli/tests/pcluster/example_configs.

These objects are used for the AWS ParallelCluster version 3 cluster configuration.
