Does anyone know what is the detailed plan for building that thing with 200
people in just 1 day?
I am very curious to understand what things can be done in parallel, what
things are serialized from the point of view of installation, testing and
Even monitoring the progress,identifying critical tasks, balancing the
workforce, having several B,C plans in case plan A fails.
And what is the final target, to run across the entire cluster HPL by the end
of the day?
What is a day in here a business day or 24hours?
