[petsc-users] installation on cloud platform

Dear all,

  has anyone here tried/managed to install PETSc on e.g. Amazon AWS or
the Google Compute Engine?

I believe some extra components are needed for coordination, e.g.
Kubernetes or Mesos (in turn requiring that the library be compiled
within some sort of container, e.g. Docker), but I'm a bit lost amid
all the options.

Are the MPI functions (e.g. broadcast, scatter, gather ..?) used by
PETSc compatible with those platforms?

Thank you in advance,
