I am currently working on creating a cluster computer for my school. I'd like to know what you guys think would be a good distro to install on the nodes and on the host.
I was thinking Pelican http://idea.uab.es/mcreel/PelicanHPC/
I'd like to use it for either car crash physics simulations, or if that doesn't pan out, as a render farm for CGI.
So far, I have only the gigabit switch, and gigabit ethernet cables, I need to get the machines donated from local businesses, and possibly our school district's property redistribution warehouse. Hoping for between 20-47 nodes. I'll keep the thread updated with pictures when the project begins to move forward, and I'm sure I'll have more questions...
So facepunch linux gents, what do you think?
