May 16th @ 6:00PM (EST) - I have abondoned the Beowulf project. It was a problem in search of a solution. Instead, I've renamed this server and I am using it to help mother serve bluwiki pages. See Bluwiki:Ashelley. --Sam Odio

Dec. 11th @ 5:00 PM (EST) - All the components of the master node have arrived. However, the 2U chassis does not come with a 300W powersupply (as stated in the specs) and the JetWay A200GDMS Socket 754 ATX AMD Motherboard is not ATX, but Micro-ATX (which won't work). So I've returned both, and are now waiting on replacements. --Sam Odio

Dec. 1st @ 12:00 PM (EST) - I have purchased all the components for the master node from newegg (yay!) - if you want further details, click the newegg product link to the right of each item (see specs - below). --Sam Odio

About

I am planning on building a Beowulf clustered "super" computer.

A super computer is defined by WikiPedia as one that leads the world in terms of processing capacity, particularly speed of calculation, at the time of its introduction.
I'm not sure if my beowulf will meet that defination - but I will give it my best shot...

Server Purpose

Haven't found one yet... any ideas? Email me.

Server Specs

4-8 2U diskless Nodes
