Build a monster Linux cluster


Our chums at PC Plus have put online their detailed guide to building an ultra-powerful Linux-based cluster. "It's easy to use any spare machines you may have to create a single homogeneous computing mega-matrix and calculation engine just by wiring them all together and running the right software." So, don't leave those old boxes sitting abandoned in the loft - link them up and start crunching numbers like there's no tomorrow.

Evil Genius

At last I'll have enough computing power to take over the world and re-populate it with Penguins!!!


It's a useful thing to know for Blender users but its not really a 'cluster', is it?


Don't be confused, it holds all the properties of a cluster.
It comprises a cluster of nodes, dedicated for compute intensive tasks, or just a 'compute cluster'.
