Project Type MQP Submission date 2010-10-26 Author Christopher Clark, ECE URN E-project-102610-185818 Title Building a High Performance Cluster through Computer Reuse Advisors Huang, Xinming, EE Tuzel, Erkan, PH Availability unrestricted
The goal of this MQP was to use "outdated" commodity PCs to build a cluster computer capable of being used for computationally intensive research. Traditionally, PCs are recycled after being taken out of use during a refresh cycle. By using open source software and minimal hardware modifications these PCs can be configured into a cluster that approaches the performance of state-of-the-art cluster computers. In this paper, we present the system setup, configuration, and validation of the WOPPR cluster computer.
