A Model for Cluster Computing at Duke

Abstract

This is a white paper on how Duke might economically set up a "public" or "shared" cluster compute environment here without offending the Gods (the granting agencies that might participate) and in a maximally inexpensive and cost-beneficial manner.

Note Well: This is a Request for Comments only; please return comments and corrections to rgb for encorporation into what I hope to be a dynamic document associated with a project, rather than a static prescription that may, in fact, be heavily flawed.
