Lucie is a cluster installation and configuration tool. It enables parallel network installation of large numbers of nodes from one single administration server. The Lucie installer performs HDD partitioning and installations of the Linux kernel and required software packages. The Lucie configurator then generates system and software configurations. Lucie is designed to be scalable and efficient, so a complete Linux cluster can be built from scratch in a short amount of time. Moreover, the whole installation process is designed to be fully automated.
Makeflow is a workflow engine for executing large complex applications on clusters, clouds, and grids. It can be used to drive several different distributed computing systems, including Condor, SGE, and the included Work Queue system. It does not require a distributed filesystem, so you can use it to harness whatever collection of machines you have available. It is typically used for scaling up data-intensive scientific applications to hundreds or thousands of cores.
