Abstract : Linux clusters are now an interesting solution to execute numerical simulations. But cluster use implies problems of deployment, because of their distributed architecture. In the past, each company developed his own solution based on various tools. Today, software suites like OSCAR are available and can be freely used. But such solutions may not be adapted to the current computing architecture of companies. For example, the current solution deployed inside a company may be based on a Linux distribution not supported by a software suite like OSCAR. Nevertheless, the use of a software suite like OSCAR is very interesting for companies that are not specialized in cluster management. This paper presents the OSCAR port to the Debian distribution in the context of the numerical simulation platform deployed at Électricité de France (Electricity of France).
