For the last few years, the CERN Batch Service has been exclusively hosted on our internal cloud service. As procurement for cloud resources to augment the compute available in our computer centre becomes a reality, we are planning the extension of the HTCondor batch service into the public cloud. This talk will provide the initial strategy we are pursuing to configure, provision and manage public cloud resources, the technical and toolsets choice made, and the progress we've made so far.
