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.

Netkit Live – a live Linux distribution based on Knoppix, and features Netkit exploits open source software (mostly licensed under GPL) and is heavily based on the User Mode Linux (UML) variant of the Linux kernel.

Netkit is an environment for setting up and performing networking experiments at low cost and with little effort. It allows to “create” several virtual network devices (full-fledged routers, switches, computers, etc.) that can be easily interconnected in order to form a network on a single PC. Networking equipments are virtual but feature many of the characteristics of the real ones, including the configuration interface.

Netkit consists of three components: a core including the user interface and the documentation, a kernel for the virtual machines, and a filesystem containing the networking tools and services. These components are distributed separately to limit the impact of updates, however all the components are required for Netkit to work properly.

Netkit is the result of the joint work of several people from the Computer Networks Laboratory of the Roma Tre University and from the Linux User Group LUG Roma 3.
