Rocks-A-Palooza To Bring Down the House

Published 03/25/2005

The San Diego Supercomputer Center announced today that it will be hosting Rocks-A-Palooza, the first in a series of workshops for users and developers of the Rocks Cluster Distribution Software. Held May 18-19, 2005, the meeting will have two tracks: one for users and another for developers. The user track will include an introduction to clusters, grids, Rocks and Roll development. The developer track will focus entirely on Roll development. Participants will have their own Rolls. A common schedule will allow participants to move between tracks where appropriate.

Attendance is free and all meals are provided. However, space is limited. See for more information.

The Rocks group is also soliciting vendors for corporate support. If your company would like to be involved with this event, please contact Mason Katz at or Greg Bruno at
