hpc linux cluster basic guideline


dear sir, i am beginner in hpc linux clustering, i do need basic guideline. some clarification needed. i do have some concepts as per my understanding

i have confusion and beginner

- the hardware memory, harddisk, machine model should be same, identical two hardware

- the software os say centos 5.5, should be used on 2 machines

- if any software else say oracle,squid,ftp we wish to use does it has to be 100% same setup

now this 2 machine setup do we need to made, or just 1st machine made 2nd machine build some other way

now what exactly we can start from, say machine1 i will made fully function then after this, made 2nd machine and make hpc cluster. or it is imaging, backup type technology which will transfer automatically and build or re-build machine.

guide if both machines are on virtualization guest os, does HPC can work same way how it work in practically physicaly two machines?

waiting your response.

kind regards

Sorry to say, your question may be simple, but we don't understand what you try to accomplish.

First. You are talking about HPC which stands for High Performance Computing. This is the kind of computing you can expect Cern does for their Large Hadron Collider

Second. You describe hard- and software you want to use for what looks like HA computing, which stands for High Availability Computing. That is, systems that run (if possible) 24/7/365.

So explain to us what you want to do HPC or HA. Maybe you get better answers if you do.
