Open PC : A Toolkit for Public Cluster with Full Ownership

Z. Akbar, I. Firmansyah, B. Hermanto and L. T. Handoko

Abstract—The openPC is a set of open source tools that realizes a parallel machine and distributed computing environment divisible into several independent blocks of nodes, and each of them is remotely but fully in any means accessible for users with a full ownership policy. The openPC components address fundamental issues relating to security, resource access, resource allocation, compatibilities with heterogeneous middlewares, user-friendly and integrated web-based interfaces, hardware control and monitoring systems. These components have been deployed successfully to the LIPI Public Cluster which is open for public use. In this paper, the unique characteristics of openPC due to its rare requirements are introduced, its components and a brief performance analysis are discussed.

Index Terms—distributed system, distributed applications, Internet applications, open source
