With over 150,000 downloads since its first public release in April 2001, OSCARís popularity speaks to its effectiveness in providing cluster installation, management, and computing software stack. OSCAR is a snapshot of best-known methods for building, programming and using clusters. OSCAR started as a traditional Beowulf software stack, has expanded in recent years to embrace numerous cluster computing styles including diskless, high-availability, scalable systems, and single system image. The project is an open effort among industry, academic and research groups to help simplify the setup and management of computing clusters. Further information is available at the OSCAR web site, http://oscar.openclustergroup.org/.
