      Preamble

      Clic is sponsorised by the RNTL, others partners are ID-IMAG, BULL and
      Mandrakesoft. This project's aim is to produce a HPC Linux Distribution for
      32 & 64 bits processors.

      Introduction

      It is an established fact that the clusters of machines can reach
      performances equivalent to supercomputers for a cost of a lower order of
      magnitude.

      This was not enough to generalize the use of the clusters in free "software"
      environment, because these distributed architectures are currently more
      complex to program and to manage that architectures owners and/or with
      memory shared.

      The generalization of the use of clusters thus passes by the offer of
      programming and administration interfaces and tools which allow to see (to
      reach, manage, program) a cluster of machines as if it were about only one
      machine. The objective of the project is to provide a Linux distribution for
      clusters machines, in the form of an entirely free software package (licence
      GPL or comparable), meeting the needs for deployment, administration and of
      programming of clusters within the framework of exploitation for intensive
      calculation.

      Objectives

      The objective of project CLIC is to allow the realization of large
      scientific computers while being based on software known as "free" (i.e.
      under licence GPL or comparable). The objective consists of the realization
      a GNU/Linux distribution for clusters of machines, meeting the needs for
      deployment, administration and programming of clusters within the framework
      of exploitation for intensive calculation.

      Phase 1 features

      Ultra Fast deploiment
      Autoconfiguration
      MPICH & LAM support
      Lots of mathematical libraries available
      Netjuggler (a virtual reality 3D engine) is included



      Hardware restrictions


      A fast ethernet network switch
      NO SCSI drives in nodes
      A PXE bootable network card (intel / 3com)
      A 3D accelerated video card for the virtual reality 3D engine
