Description/Abstract

The motivation and objective for this paper is to demonstrate (1) the integrated Linux (30 distributions, including Red Hat and SUSE), Windows (Cluster 2003 and Server 2003) and Macintosh (Tiger 10.4) cluster for running Web Services and jobs; and (2) the demonstration of the Personal High Performance Computing (PHPC), which only require a smaller number of computers, resources and space in the secure Gigabytes of 1,000 Mps and Wi-Fi/MIMO/3G of 108 Mbps networking environments. This PHPC is based on a cluster of the 32-bit and 64-bit AMD and Intel dual-core machines, which can achieve the following: (a) jobs are shared amongst different platforms, which can run as a single job altogether or run different jobs concurrently; (b) running Java and .NET Web Services; (c) receiving up to a 60% better performance referring to multi-tasking performance; (e) ensuring a secure networking environment, which includes VPN, in-build firewall and integrated wired and wireless networks; (f) storing a massive amount of data (12 TB, or 12,000 GB) for database and server applications; and (g) successfully integrating with other technologies such as the integrated Java and .NET Web Services, X.509 security, Proxy Architecture and HTTPS .
