Cluster Installation :: April 2007
I helped install the new CITA beowulf cluster, dubbed Sunnyvale. The cluster consists of 5-racks of 200 1-U Dell PowerEdge 1950 servers, for a total of 800GB of RAM and 1600 Intel Xeon E5310 cores. The cluster is diskless, a first at CITA. We used CentOS 4.4 as the base GNU/Linux operating system, then installed OSCAR 5.0 for the initial parallel administration and user-level software and finally made it an NFSroot r/o filesystem using OneSIS.
