Excuse me english please. This is similiar to PelicanHPC but this
distributions alaws the instalation of the operating system in the
frontend using "ubiquity" and is very easy the instalation. I'm
writing a quickstart guide but you have an article published y the
IEEE. I'm the author.


If you go to the pelicanHPC website you can see that Michael Creel
recomend to give a try ABC GNU/Linux


Best regards.
