Hardware requirements

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. Prague (example): 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.
