I was interested in clustering systems three years agao when I was studying
operating systems.
I knew at that moment the Red Hat enterprise cluster system or sth can do
this kind of job (shoud be free for the system), and also there was a
microsoft windows system can also do this job. The thing is I am not in this
field any more. So there might be great changes from time to time.

I suggest that you go to the Red Hat community and search for details.
I believe that you can find something interesting there and the Red Hat
clustering system might be your solution.

Kind regards,

Dear All,

Currently we are developing an Integrated Web Server for protein sequence
and structure analysis.
We are planning to provide a dedicated cluster to support the server.

I need help to set up a web application that can manage the web server and
our cluster.
For example  if the user is submitting a huge set  of sequence for MSA, the
program should take care of the process and pass it on to the cluster and
display the status of the job (que and other details).
I know this is possible and people are doing it for example (Robetta

It will be great, If any of the BioIT techies around can help me out with
some help :))

We are using Ganglia as the server management tool. Web  Server is apache
running on  CentOS4 .

Thanks in Advance and Happy New Year to all...
S Khadar
