Clusters and Nodes

In computer science and networking, a "cluster" is a group of interconnected computing devices or servers that function as a unified system. On the other hand, a "node" usually refers to an individual computing device or unit, such as a computer or server, that is part of a larger network. An analogy can be drawn with the concept of a team, where each member is equivalent to a node. When multiple members come together to perform a task, they form a single entity known as a team. Similarly, when multiple nodes are configured to perform a set of operations, they form a cluster.

Digital Research Alliance of Canada (the Alliance) has 6 clusters.

We note that Ceday is always connected to the internet, however Narval is not, so make sure.
