An adventure in HPC

This is the first post in a series of posts related to my first adventure in the world of HPC, hand in hand with my code-friend @yulwitter.

In this series I want to show the complete road I made and follow in order to have a completely functional HPC environment. For now the route will be as follow:

  1. Installing ApricityOS
  2. Installing VirtualBox on ApricityOS
  3. Installing Fedora Server 24 on a VirtualBox’s virtual machine
  4. Make a VirtualBox’s virtual machine LAN-available
  5. Installing Hadoop 2.X on Fedora Server 24
  6. Testing Hadoop 2.X on a single node Fedora Server cluster
  7. Cloning a VirtualBox’s Virtual Machine
  8. Configuring hostname in Fedora Server
  9. Configuring Static IP in Fedora Server 24
  10. Making a 4-node cluster of VirtualBox’s Virtual Machines
  11. Some MPI testing on a 4-node Fedora Server cluster
  12. Configuring Hadoop 2.X on a 4-node Fedora Server cluster
  13. Some Hadoop 2.X testings on a single node Fedora Server cluster
  14. A real crunching number problem in a 4-node Fedora Server cluster with MPI
  15. A real crunching number problem in a 4-node Fedora Server cluster with Hadoop 2.X

For all those entries in the road map, I will be using my personal computer which have the technical specifications shown in Table 1

Table 1.Techical Specifications

This post will be updated as I go forward in the HPC world.
