Building a Sun HPC Virtual Cluster

The Savannah blog provides detailed instructions on building a Sun HPC Virtual Cluster:

“This tutorial illustrates the procedure of utilizing Sun HPC software stack, Linux Edition 2.0 and Sun xVM Virtual Box to set up a High Performance Computing development platform on a moderate laptop. We demonstrated a complete open source solution for HPC software developers who has no access to computer clusters and proprietary softwares. All of software components in Sun HPC software stack, Linux Edition are exactly as same as those running on world leading supercomputers. We hope more and more HPC software developers could take advantage of such a “mobile” development platform in their projects. We will also be eager to receive feedbacks and wishlists for the future Sun HPC software stack releases. Download the Sun HPC software stack and Join the community today!” Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
