Cluster infrastructure for biological and health related research

By Sophia Corsava and Vladimir Getov

Abstract

Researchers in the biological and health industries need powerful and stable systems for their work. These systems must be dependable, fault-tolerant, highly available and easy to use. To cope with these demands we propose the use of computational and data clusters in a fail-over configuration combined with the grid technology and job scheduling. Our infrastructure has been deployed successfully for running time-critical applications in commercial environments. We also present experimental results from this pilot implementation that demonstrate the viability of our approach
