"When MSC.Linux, the open-source solution division of MSC.Software Corp., makes its MSC.Linux V2001 beta version available this April, it will signal a bit of a coming out party for the quiet Open Cluster Group (OCG), an organization of scientists dedicated to make clustering easier for developers."

This is because the MSC.Linux V2001 beta has been fitted with the OCG's first project, the Open Source Cluster Application Resources (OSCAR)."

"Simply, OCG said "everything you need to build, maintain, and use a modest sized Linux cluster is included in OSCAR." Developed for experienced cluster developers, OSCAR 1.0 was launched late February and while the organization said the OSCAR simplifies cluster building, it is fragile and requires more Linux system administration expertise -- in other words, developers to test it. And that is why MSC has spearheaded OSCAR's implementation."

"OCG is led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), the University of Illinois' National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), IBM and Intel. MSC.Software, a founding member of the team, is the technical lead for the programming environment. Additional collaborators in the Open Cluster Group include Dell, SGI and Veridian."
