Using Condor could help cut your electricity use, but only if it is carried out with care and consideration. Cardiff University’s Information Services directorate has discovered some fascinating insights into how best to reduce energy use. If one cares about being green, only newer PCs should be included in the Condor pool. Moreover, easier to encourage non-HPC literate people to use Condor rather than the traditional type of HPC cluster. This provides an entry point that would not be there otherwise; so it helps new HPC users understand the relevant concepts and obtain results without going through a deep learning curve.
