Beo1 - 2003-2005
The HPC world had moved on - Unix machines were becoming obsolete - too expensive compared with the fast-developing Linux machines that were becoming available..
Our first Linux beowulf cluster was intended as a proof of concept - a step into the quickly emerging world of Linux HPC clusters.
It was a small cluster installed by Compusys. All machines were 32 bit machines, and it was connected with both Ethernet and Myrinet networks.
- 8-node dual processor Xeon 2.4GHz with 2Gb RAM per node
- 5-node dual processor Xeon 3.0GHz with 2Gb RAM per node
- 16-node Myrinet switch
Storage was provided by local disk on the master node served to the slave nodes.
