HPCwire: When companies purchase a significant number of machines and cluster them together to solve their computing needs, their site environment often drives specific requirements for their clusters. These requirements vary and often include specific networking configurations, specific applications that need managing, specific approaches to software installation and maintenance, and existing management software and procedures that must be accommodated. The key to successful cluster administration software is that it be flexible enough to accommodate many of these environments.
