Can I run my own HPC system?

Running your own HPC system isn't recommended.  By leveraging the resources on OARC you don't have to pay for infrastructure costs like air conditioning, power and space.  Running your own system not only requires additional financial investments but limits the range of support available for your system.  Unless there is a specific function that can't be performed by the condo cluster provided by OARC, running a local is discouraged.
