"ORNL, NCSA team with six industry leaders to create 'supercomputer on a CD'."

"Software that will make configuring and maintaining a Linux cluster like installing commercial software from a CD will be demonstrated by Intel at next week's Linux World Conference in New York. In addition, IBM will discuss this software, called Open Source Cluster Applications Resources (OSCAR) in a presentation at IBM's Linux World booth."

"OSCAR is ready for distribution to experienced cluster computing professionals as a developer's release. A full release of OSCAR for the wider cluster computing community will be ready in the near future."

"OSCAR is being developed by the Open Cluster Group (http://www.OpenClusterGroup.org), a collaboration among major research centers and technology companies led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), the University of Illinois' National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), IBM and Intel. Other collaborators in the Open Cluster Group are Dell, SGI, MSC.Software, and Veridian. Members of NCSA's cluster development team will assist with the demo at Linux World. Dell will provide the equipment for the demo."
