Experience and knowledge accumulated in leading-edge large scale semiconductor development over 22 years Technology capable of conducting Japan’s first 10nm – to 7nm process large-scale semiconductor development Multiple developmental achievements on the world’s largest size super-ultra many-core processor Verification and test implementation (in progress) in a very large FPGA model in a very short period of time Utilizing the latest “immersion cooling technology” boasting the world’s highest efficiency and volume density Designated system architecture design on the premise of large-scale system Microsoft Windows 7, 8, 9, 10, Mac OS X, Linux.
Linux is the de facto OS for HPC clusters–not only is it the ideal environment for scientific computing, but it doesn’t cost a thing to install it on hundreds or even thousands of nodes. Imagine how much it would cost to install Windows on all those nodes!
Begin with installing the latest version of the motherboard BIOS and firmware, which should be the same on all nodes. Install your preferred Linux distro on each node, with a graphical UI for the head node. Popular choices include CentOS, OpenSuse, Scientific Linux, RedHat, and SLES.
This author highly recommends using the Rocks Cluster Distribution. In addition to installing all the tools necessary for a computer cluster to function, Rocks uses a great method for ‘distributing’ many instances of itself to the nodes very.
