Based on the experience from setup done in Prague.
Full local setup – not worth doing on one computer.
Cluster of computers with the same system installation.
part of “Golias” computing center – mainly used by Alice and Atlas
advantage - low hardware maintenance
disadvantage - almost no choice over installed software
4x double Opteron 244, 2GB RAM
shared NFS disk space on the farm
only one nod with AFS software
100 Mbit/s connection outside
full local compilation is a must
From our experience: 8 CPUs on a farm that can be used any time is worth the installation.
