CIS(theta) Meeting X (2010-2011) - Time to switch gears!

Time to switch gears!


The school networks were down this week. So, we didn't get much done except for talking a lot! We decided that we should look into alternatives to the cluster solutions we've been trying of late. See the readings and research sections above for some ideas.

Maybe we should just break down and install openMPI directly onto our Ubuntu Desktop? What about fractal renderings, povray scenes and blender sequences using non-traditional clusters? It may be time for a change! 

Well, that's all for this week!  Please stay tuned.  We hope this record will help others trying to make their own clusters.  Also, if you have any hints or pointers, please leave a comment to let us know.  

Happy Clustering,
