Linux Cluster for Computational Physics

We constructed a series Linux computing clusters at Boston University for Dr. Anders Sandvik.

The initial cluster prototype consists of 48 nodes arranged on plates with 3 motherboards each. One 380W power supply powers each plate. A single 48-port 100BaseT ethernet switch provides. network connections to all nodes in a rack. Nodes are currently diskless, though a small disk could probably be added if a large PSU were used.
