PelicanHPC GNU/Linux (formerly: ParallelKnoppix) – a specialized Linux distribution, built on the top of Debian, providing turnkey solutions for computer clusters.
A cluster of computers – a group of interconnected computing units that work together to provide an integrated work environment.
The PelicanHPC live system is built using scripts from the Debian Live project. To create your own version you only need the ‘live-build’, ‘deboostrap’, ‘rsync’ and ‘make_pelican’ packages. All of them are available on the PelicanHPC live iso image.

• includes a stable version of OpenMPI, an MPI implementation.
• available for 64 bit processors. Older versions of the system are available for 32-bit machines.
• Includes Linpack HPL benchmark.
• Pelican releases are built and tested using a stable version of Debian GNU Linux.
