Clustering / Grid Computing
Wondering if anyone is able to give some assistance with regards to clustering / grid computing. Have spent countless hours researching the topic and its vast, and somewhat keeps leading me around in circles as to what the best solution should be and what’s currently active and worth investing time into.
The actions of the cluster I want to create involve individual systems joining the cluster and contributing their resources to the cause. I have played around successfully with openMosix / clusterKnoppix following this guide firewall.cx/general-topics-reviews/linuxunix-related/openmoisx-linux-supercomputer.html. The problem with this is that OpenMosix is dead and apparently retaken by LinuxPMI, but from what I can see development seems pretty stagnant and the documentation looks fairly none existent. So as much as I like it I’m worried about investing time into something that is no longer supported.
Believe what I need is a Single System Image operating system as opposed to the likes of just creating a Beowolf cluster?
There seems to be so many options like:
• OpenMosix / LinuxPMI
• Dragonfly BSD
But the solution needs to be as user friendly as possible, at least to the extent as ClusterKnoppix was.
Is there even such a thing, any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
