Debian Cluster Components - DCC

Linux clusters are being more and more adopted as supercomputing infrastructure facilities in scientific research laboratories, but also in other kinds of research work where high computing power is essential. With their price/performance ratio Linux clusters more and more take over the market share of specialized super-computers.

In order to build a "Linux cluster" from a number of standalone PCs, one must upgrade a standard Linux distribution with some extra functionality which will provide easy installation, administration, enforcing the security policy and monitoring of elementary resources within a Linux cluster. Although some of the tools already exist, there are a very few complete distributions of Linux targeting High-Performance users. The real problem is that all cluster-targeted distributions are based on RedHat as a base Linux distribution.
