Linux Compute Cluster (LCC)

Linux Compute Cluster in industrial usage and research as well as in other areas offer an appealing price/performance-ratio. Issues which have to be addressed if you want to use LCC are among others

  • Stability of Linux Compute Cluster - what functionality is necessary to create a stable computing environment out of the distributed systems where nodes,
    network, ... can fail
  • Administration of many Linux-OS on the different nodes of you LCC vs. monolithic SMP-systems in the past
  • Availability/Configuration/Tuning of Applications for Linux Clusters
  • TCO of Linux Compute Clusters

We offer independent consulting services for companies utilizing Linux Compute Clusters to build cost-effective high performance computing solutions. Combined with our extensive knowledge in Grid Computing Altreia offers consulting to design HPC solutions out of one hand.

Right now there are about 65 Companies running Linux Compute Cluster in the German Industry with over 5600 processors. The number of clusters is increasing rapidly. Here are some results about LCC in the Germany industry from our survey conducted in Summer 2003.

    Remarks on Linux Compute Clusters

    LANL's Mike Warren:
    Example of a self-made Linux cluster
    How the LANL built "The Space Simulator" - a 294 processor GigE cluster for 500.000 USD. More ...
    DaimlerChrysler's John Picklo:
    Introducing clusters we lose less jobs !
    Compared to the job loss rate of 0,1% on SMP due to system failure DaimlerChrysler loses again half of that rate on their Linux and Itanium clusters. More ...
    Linux Cluster TCO-Calculator available
    With our Total Cost of Ownership-calculator (TCO) for Linux Compute Clusters you can calculate the distribution of costs (e.g. Hardware, Administration, Environm.) and do comparisons with your present system.
