Simply put, JPPF enables applications with large processing power requirements to be run on any number of computers, in order to dramatically reduce their processing time. This is done by splitting an application into smaller parts that can be executed simultaneously on...
FlashMob Computing started as a challenge. Could we convince enough people to bring their conventional computers to a single location in order to build a temporary supercomputer, one that could compete with the fastest and most expensive computers in the world?Discontinued
PelicanHPC is a Debian-based live CD image with a goal to make it simple to set up a high performance computing cluster. The front-end node (either a real computer or a virtual machine) boots from the CD image.
Rocks is an free Linux cluster distribution that enables end users to easily build computational clusters, grid endpoints and visualization tiled-display walls. 100's of researchers from around the world have used Rocks to deploy their own cluster.
