Can u shed some light no pros/cons of using e.g. 32-bit vs 64-bit cpus
with BioBrew-1.0 distro.
Also what do u recommend viz-a-viz hardware that performs best and is
robust with BioBrew distribution in regards to e.g. per node :
1. Single or Dual CPU machine
2. 32-bit or 64-bit cpu (intel, amd) ?
3. Recommended motherboard memory ?
4. Recommended motherboard hard-disk (if any) size ?
I am still fuzzy on whats the 'recommended' HW configuration for NPACI
rocks cluster distribution ...?
In other words how does a node look like, just the motherboard with CPU
or is there on-board RAM and HD ?
Your input ... Please.

I mean whats a good HW configuration for the life sciences.  Has anyone
done some benchmarks ?
