Hello,
I need to put together a multi computer cluster. My work is trying to run CFD analysis, but our last cluster died and I have to pick up the pieces. I was hoping to get any information I could on building and setting up a cluster that would run Fine/Turbo (the CFD software). At this point, I have 7 (identical, I think) computers sitting around that I am installing Fedora on. I need to know how I can connect them (and what hardware I need for that), what software I use to set one as a master and set up the slaves, and how to set up a HDD array so I can put in a bunch of hdds and have good speed and redundancy (the files created/analysed for this will be TBs large).

I have pretty good computing knowledge and have built several PCs, but I'm not familiar with Linux and have never attempted to set up a cluster (or raid system, especially external to the computers).

Any recent guides or advice would be very appreciated. I would prefer something GUI based if possible- I'd like to spend as little time in the linux command prompt as humanly possible.

Thanks!
