List some of the manual steps necessary to rack and install a cluster
Examine the manual steps, looking for ways to improve efficiency
Perform some simple time estimations for an example cluster
Each cluster is unique in its own way. The size of the cluster, the selection of individual components, and the target environment all affect the amount of effort needed to implement the cluster. Many of the steps involved, however, such as racking and cabling, require similar efforts in every cluster project. This chapter quantifies some of the actual steps required in the physical construction of a cluster.
