Clustering
 
Hello!

So I am trying to fully understanding clustering, but I am having a bit of a time finding a cluster specific forum like this one. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am wondering two main things. The first is, would using an ITX or even a miniatx board in a cluster be worth it especially if using GPU compute units? A friend was asking me that and my first thought is not really, because you lose slots for the GPU units themselves, but it would require less space and power so there is that. The second thing I am wondering is the control node doesnt have to be the HPC itself right? It can be just the controller while it offloads to more powerful nodes the actual workload right?

Without more specifics, it is impossible to provide a good answer your question. Some applications don't have a "control node". There are many clustering suites and there are applications with clustering features built into them. I would give us more info or ask a forum dedicated to your application.
