XSEDE-Compatible Basic Cluster (XCBC)
The XSEDE-Compatible Basic Cluster (XCBC) software toolkit enables campus CI resource administrators to build a local cluster from scratch, which is then easily interoperable with XSEDE-supported CI resources. XCBC is very simple in concept: pull the lever, have a cluster built for you complete with an open source resource manager / scheduler and all of the essential tools needed to run a cluster, and have those tools set in place in ways that mimic the basic setup on an XSEDE-supported cluster . The XCBC is based on the OpenHPC project, and consists of XSEDE -developed Ansible playbooks and templates designed to ease the work required to build a cluster. Consult the XSEDE Knowledge Base for complete information about how to use XCBC to set up a cluster.
