Description

In this paper, the authors describe the use of a cluster as a generalized facility for development. A development facility is a system used primarily for testing and development activities while being operated reliably for many users. They are in the midst of a project to build and operate a large-scale development facility. They discuss the motivation for using clusters in this way and compare the model with a classic computing facility. They describe their experiences and findings from the first phase of this project. many of these observations are relevant to the design of standard clusters and to future ... continued below
