Instant-Grid is a live-CD based on Knoppix bundled with a pre-configured grid environment based on the Globus Toolkit.
One PC started from this CD becomes the Instant-Grid frontend. It also functions as a PXE boot-server, allowing other PCs in the same local network to boot the Instant-Grid environment.
Together with the frontend, these PCs automatically form a working test grid. Like with the original Knoppix, the existing configuration of the participating PC is not touched (except maybe for enabling the PXE boot-option), and remains instantly available by a simple reboot.
What's New in This Release:
· This version is based on Knoppix 5.1.1, which improves support for more recent hardware.
· The English documentation has been expanded, many function tests have been automated, and the workflow stability has been improved.
