Message I work w/ HPC benchmark clusters using LLNL's YACI:

http://www.llnl.gov/​linux/yaci/yaci.html​

I like very light-weight tools, that I can easily modify; no Rocks or
Oscar for me. I also don't need a "configuration manager". As I use
pre-production silicon, there is no "turn-key" solution for me. As a
benchmark cluster, I have to constantly upgrade critical software
components, such as compilers and interconnect stacks.

I've modified YACI to allow me to provision multiple images at once...
so, for example, I can quickly switch nodes from RHEL4U4 to SLES10, w/o
reprovisioning.

I need a way to manage these images so I can tell what I've changed and
revert back when there's a problem: FSVS is the solution.
