Warewulf needs to do its job and stay out of the way. There should be no underlying system dependencies, changes or “stack” for the controller or worker nodes.
Warewulf is used by hobbyists, researchers, scientists, engineers and systems administrators. This means that Warewulf must be simple to use and understand.
Warewulf is highly flexible and can address the needs of any environment– from a computer lab with graphical workstations, to under-the-desk clusters, to massive supercomputing centers providing traditional HPC capabilities to thousands of users.
