Linux.com by Robin 'Roblimo' Miller: SC06, "the premier international conference on high performance computing, networking and storage," was held last week in Tampa, Florida. I took my video camera with me so that I could give you a little feeling of what the show was like, and even grabbed a couple of shots of the "by invitation only" Beowulf Users Group party that was held at a bar a few blocks away from the Tampa Convention Center.

OSCAR is a software package that supports the use of high-performance
computing by reducing the work of cluster configuration, installation,
operation, and management. The infrastructure underlying OSCAR 5.0 has been
completely reworked to include smart package managers, yum based image
building and package installs, easier client updating by using a repository
based approach, and optimized start ups to reduce build time. Another long
anticipated feature added in 5.0 is the ability to support multiple Linux
distributions and architectures on the same cluster.
