Running a Windows HPC Server 2008 cluster on Hyper-V


Recently Giovanni posted a document on the Windows HPC community portal describing how to set up a virtual HPC cluster. The ZIP file (did he use his MacBook to write the doc? :)) contains also sample code that can be executed against the virtual cluster and examples that show how to use the new admin tools.

The only caveat, you have to have some experience with installing Windows Server and Windows administration in general. This is not a simple "click through" guide. Giovanni promised to update it once we have beta 2 of Windows HPC Server 2008 out.

BTW, there’s more interesting stuff on our HPC community portal at windowshpc.net. And if you want to contribute, register to start posting and blogging.

    I am going prepare a Mac Mini in such a way that you will be able to install a Windows HPC cluster in virtual machines based on Hyper-V. Once you followed the steps outlined in the videos you will be able to install a fully functional HPC cluster environment,
