Several old computers=Cluster?


Hi,

I have a few old Pentium boxes lying around the house, and was wondering if it would be possible to turn them into a cluster. I'm not looking to do anything important with this proposed cluster, I would just like to know if it is possible, and if I would actually end up with more computing power out of it.

Thanks,

--C

Thanks for the info!

I did a little reading-up on clusters, and there seems to be a few different kinds/methods. I will just be using my cluster as a desktop, and possibly a simple webserver. I don't know any programming, and I won't be doing any real "supercomputer" type stuff like scientific simulations or anything. What would be the best kind of cluster for me to try? I've tried to search for info on clusters, but it's very bewildering. Is there a site like www.distrowatch.com for clusters?

Thanks,

--C

Rocks may be one of the most easy distro's to make a cluster. Using it for any real work is not so easy.

Kind of an old post to add to.
