Aetherwulf is a small rack-mountable Beowulf cluster made from 10 single board computers. Each node consists of a 1GHz Pentium 3 processor, 30GB IBM Travelstar laptop drive, 256MB ram, and build in NIC and video. The case was designed to be clear for demonstration purposes. We went through a great many problems trying to get the machine working - all related solely to power problems. The evolution of the machine is detailed below in photos.

Aetherwulf was delivered to Code 935 at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center on February 27th.

Aetherwulf was constructed by Nathan DeBardeleben and Phil Carns.
