Microwulf: A Personal, Portable Beowulf Cluster

Microwulf is a personal, portable Beowulf cluster, providing over 26 Gflops of measured performance, for less than $2500. Its dimensions are just 11" x 12" x 17", making it small enough to fit on one's desktop or in a suitcase.

Joel Adams and Microwulf
Microwulf was designed and built by Calvin CS professor Joel Adams and senior Tim Brom.
