Hi everyone,

I'm Jesus Iglesias, a recently graduated Telecommunications engineer by a spanish university,
In a few weeks time I'm starting a doctoral thesis which topic is the following: "Study of reneweable energies and its relationships with meteorolgy variables based on a distritibuted computer system (grid computing style)"

The basic idea is to use a cluster (beowulf style) in a certain city to process simultaneously data coming from an energy station and a meteorolgy station, and then repeat this study with another cluster in another different city. In the end, the objective is to connect these computer clusters (making a grid this way) so as to be able to do this study globally (reaching a number of differents cities in Spain).

As a beginner in everything related to clusters and grid computing I'll be asking for help at this list quite often from now onwards. 
My first question is an obvious one, do you guys think this idea for the distributed computing system is a good one taking into account the scientific study that I'm planning to do?


Thanks everyone there in advance,


Jesus, from Spain
