Remote simulation cluster for Momentum Turbo Element

Question asked by david_g on Aug 8, 2011
I intend to set up a small computer cluster to allow Momentum simulations to be run remotely using "Turbo Element" and would be interested in anyone else's experiences.

There's a small budget for computer equipment so I'd like to know where to spend the money, i.e. should I focus on amount of RAM, CPU cores or faster network cards (or all three!)
From the looks of things there is no GPGPU facility so I presume getting a fast graphics card is a waste of time.

I will be using Sun Grid Engine to control things as I've heard it's easy to use and free.

Any other hints and tips or comments on the pitfalls to avoid would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
David
