ParallelKnoppix – a GNU/Linux operating system on Live CD that allows you to develop a Beowulf style cluster, which uses MPI libraries. Open MPI, LAM-MPI and MPICH are installed and ready to use. It allows setting up a cluster of computers for parallel processing using MPI. PK includes extensive examples using MPITB for Gnu Octave.

ParallelKnoppix is a fast and easy way to create a HPC cluster for parallel computing. It takes less than 10 minutes to go from a cold start to having a running cluster. Using virtualization tools, you can create a real PK cluster from any distribution of Linux, or from other popular operating systems.

Clusters from 2 to 200 machines are supported. A cluster created with PK is temporary – nothing is installed to any of the computers in the cluster. It’s also single-user.

ParallelKnoppix is developed principally at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

The ParallelKnoppix project been renamed to PelicanHPC.
