[Beowulf] HPC for community college?

That is the idea behind the Limulus systems -- a personal (or group) small
turn-key cluster that can deliver local HPC performance.
Users can learn HPC software, administration, and run production
codes on performance hardware.

I have been calling these "No Data Center Needed"
computing systems (or as is now the trend "Edge" computing).
These systems have a different power/noise/heat envelope
than a small pile of data center servers (i.e. you can use
them next to your desk, in a lab or classroom, at home etc.)

Performance is optimized to fit in an ambient power/noise/heat
envelope. Basement Supercomputing recently started shipping
updated systems with uATX blades and 65W Ryzen processors
(with ECC), more details are on the data sheet (web page not
updated to new systems just yet)


Full disclosure, I work with Basement Supercomputing.
