A computer cluster is a group of loosely coupled computers that work to- gether closely so that in many respects it can be viewed as though it were a single computer. Clusters are commonly connected through fast local area networks and are usually deployed to improve speed and/or reliability over that provided by a single computer, while typically being much more cost-e\ufb00ective than single com- puters of comparable speed or reliability.

Clusters built from open source software, particularly based on the GNU/Linux

operating system, are increasingly popular. Their success is not hard to explain because they can cheaply solve an ever-widening range of number-crunching appli- cations. A wealth of open source or free software has emerged to make it easy to set up, administer, and program these clusters. This work aims at an implemen- tation of free and open source clusters for performing scienti\ufb01c computations at a faster pace.
