How to build a cheap cluster using generic parts and open source software...
DRBL on its own can create a set of machines that could be used as thin clients in, say, a classroom setting. By adding the Condor clustering software we turn this set of machines into a computing cluster that can perform high-throughput scientific computation on a large scale. You can submit serial or parallel computing jobs on the server, and Condor takes care of distributing the jobs to idle cluster machines, if any, or putting them in a queue until the required resources are available. Condor can also perform periodic checkpoints on the jobs and restart them if something causes the machine on which they are running to reboot.
