Is there anybody out there who has experience of putting together a 
small HPC cluster to run WRF model? I would appreciate it very much if 
you could give any suggestions.

GOAL: I got an empty room and some funding (12-15K), and hope to have 
WRF modeling results from there. So, what computing hardware and 
software should I put into that room?

I have seen that DELL has different PowerEdges, but have no ideas about 
which one is the most appropriate one for our tasks.  I hope to have at 
least 32 cpus, some disk space (~10TB). But to configure a small HPC 
computer out of those DELL options seems too hard for me. Please share 
your experience and help me out!
