T-arenal: it is a distributed computing system that offers a computing alternative to perform the processing of computationally expensive tasks. T-arenal system was created in order to use the maximum amount of computational resources under its controls in a local network, without limitations in the size of the system. To accomplish this, the peer-to-peer and client-server architecture were combined within one model. The peer-to-peer model was implemented among the servers of the system. The system is divided in two main parts: back-end and front-end. The front-end is the means of accessing functionalities on the system by users, while the back-end is the responsible to perform all requests made via front-end. The Java RMI communications technology is used for message passing among the modules of T-arenal, as well as Java Sockets and Apache FTP to exchange large data files.

System requirements

In general terms the minimal and recommended system requirements are:

Hardware:

  • Processor: All processors developed hereafter by Intel Corp. are supported on the assembly level optimization. All AMD current processors work as old Pentium with higher clock frequency (no special optimization).
  • Processor Clock Speed: minimum Intel(R) Celeron(R) M processor 1.40GHz or equivalent. Recommended Intel(R) Core2Quad processor 2.5GHz or above.
  • Memory: 512MB minimum. We recommend 1024MB or above in order to improve performance.

Software:

Operation system: T-arenal is designed to run on any UNIX/LINUX or MAC platforms, as well as on microcomputers running Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000 or XP, Vista, 7 and above. T-arenal is platform-independent software.

Operation system extensions: T-arenal requires Java(TM) 7 Runtime Environment on the target system. It runs under any host operating system, which supports Java(TM) 7 Runtime Environment and also works on X86 and X64 based architecture.
