[News] Grids Are Powered by Mandriva GNU/Linux

Linux Wizard - Thoughts about Linux marketing #2 : Mandriva and Grid-computing

,----[ Quote ]
| Partners like EADS, EDF, Nec, SAP, Red Flag and Mandriva are working together 
| to build an ubiquitous grid computing system based on Linux. ISO can be 
| download on the Mandriva mirrors, and RPMS for the Xtreem OS are available. 
| Xtreem OS is based on Mandriva 2008.0, but it seems that a new version may be 
| based on the Mandriva 2009.0    



Grid.org HPC Community Hits Growth Milestone

,----[ Quote ]
| Grid.org, the online community for open source cluster and grid software,
| announced today that the site garnered over 100,000 unique visitors in 2008,
| with the highest traffic generating from the UniCluster, Amazon EC2 and HPC
| Thought Leadership discussion groups.



World's biggest computing grid launched

,----[ Quote ]
| The world’s largest computing grid is ready to tackle mankind’s biggest data
| challenge from the earth’s most powerful accelerator. Today, three weeks
| after the first particle beams were injected into the Large Hadron Collider
| (LHC), the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid combines the power of more than 140
| computer centers from 33 countries to analyze and manage more than 15 million
| gigabytes of LHC data every year.


Grid.org Open Source Community Surpasses 5,000 Software Downloads

,----[ Quote ]
| Grid.org, the online community for open-source cluster and grid software,
| announced today that their open source cluster software stack, UniCluster,
| has exceeded 5,000 downloads by the HPC community.
| Grid.org, launched in November 2007, was developed to provide a single
| aggregation point for information and interaction by the community of grid
| and cluster users, developers and administrators. Home to Univa UD's
| UniCluster software stack, Grid.org offers an all-inclusive destination for
| users to exchange information, ideas, and participate in development
| projects.


Opinion - The role of open source in grid computing: past, present and future

,----[ Quote ]
| To a significant extent, the benefits that we predicted for open source 
| release have indeed accrued: Globus software has been widely adopted, and 
| many groups are doing amazing things with it, building exciting applications, 
| powerful tools, and substantial infrastructures. (I can go on at tremendous 
| length on this topic, but I will restrain myself.)    


Open source grid computing takes off

,----[ Quote ]
| The Hadoop project is opening up a really interesting discussion around 
| computing scale. A few years ago I never would have imagined that the open 
| source world would be contributing software solutions like this to the 
| market. I don’t know why I had that perception, really. Perhaps all the 
| positioning by enterprise software companies to discredit open source 
| software started to sink in.     


XtreemOS, a Linux-based Operating System to support Virtual Organizations for
next generation Grids

,----[ Quote ]
| Based on Linux, XtreemOS will have 3 different versions capable of running on 
| single PCs, clusters and mobile devices and will provide for the Grid what an 
| operating system offers for a single computer: abstraction from the hardware 
| and secure resource sharing between different users.   


Living off the grid OS

,----[ Quote ]
| Visualize virtualization that goes beyond the usual hardware associated with 
| the term -- servers and storage, for example -- to encompass the whole set of  
| resources in a computing environment, including firewalls, databases, memory, 
| and CPUs, for example.  
| The benefits of a grid OS are considerable, allowing you to allocate more 
| computing power to an application in a heartbeat and with seamless effort, 
| for example.
