Rocks is a complete "cluster on a CD" solution for
x86 and IA64 Red Hat Linux COTS clusters. Building
a Rocks cluster does not require any experience in
clustering, yet a cluster architect will find a
flexible and programmatic way to redesign the
entire software stack just below the surface
(appropriately hidden from the majority of users).
Although Rocks includes the tools expected from
any clustering software stack (PBS, Maui, GM
support, Ganglia, etc), it is unique in its
simplicity of installation.
