New Digs  //  Tuesday, October 21, 2008

I spent the better part of the day today reorganizing the room in which the grid lives. Through various contacts, I was able to acquire a server shelf on which to house all of the systems, which allowed us to free up much of the real estate in the room. The entire grid is now side-by-side with the department web server. Nothing technical, but here's pictures:

Next time, I will discuss my solution to the node-addition problem. I'm considering g4l, to image the nodes and distribute the OS, although I admit, there doesn't really seem to be a good way to do it. I am also looking into the possibility of using something like BOINC to distribute grid jobs across more of campus.

Here's to next time.
