Building and Benchmarking a New Beowulf Cluster for Grid Computing and Other Applications
2008 February 24
I presented last Feb 23 a paper documenting the commissioning of our new Beowulf cluster. The 8th Philippine Computing Congress was held in University of the Philippines–Diliman. My presentation was held at the new Computer Science building (beside the EEE building). Here is a short description of the paper:
Title: Building and Benchmarking a New Beowulf Cluster for Grid Computing and Other Applications Authors: Allan Espinosa and Rafael Saldana
In this paper, we report our upgrade of our AGILA Beowulf cluster. Commodity desktop computers were used for the compute nodes. The server node was set-up as a high-end server class machine to house terabytes of data from the universityâ€™s scientific computing applications such as cellular automata, molecular dynamics, mesoscale climate modeling, and computational models requiring high performance computing infrastructures.
Embedded below is my presentation. Enjoy!
