Just fell into the hole that is cluster computing. Mainly because I have a few computers left over and got interested in parallell computing.
Would it be possible to tweak/add to Zorin Grid in order to use it to manage and set up a Beowulf type cluster (I haven’t fully explored the Grid yet)? Or rather, would that be totally out of scope for Zorin considering RedHat and a few others do that stuff and it’s perhaps too far from “regular” users?
Basically, set up a grid, push the images to the nodes (which I suppose is no problem with regular Grid) but maybe also have “everything” you need for a cluster packaged and ready to run a, let’s say, max 6-8 node cluster? I’d gladly pay a little extra for that, and more for a stable 16 node cluster
EDIT: The OSCAR project seems to be defunct but something along those lines. Also, if one could use GRID and Zorin OS to manage this then unused computers could enter the cluster when available. In principal, any school or small company running a few workstations by day could run a computing cluster / render farm et c during off hours. Potentially sell computing power even??
