        In Windows HPC Server 2008 R2, you can add workstation computers that are running the Windows 7 operating system to your high performance computing (HPC) cluster. These computers are added as workstation nodes, and you can use them to run cluster jobs. Workstation nodes added to an HPC cluster are also referred to as a cluster of workstations. Workstation nodes do not need to be dedicated cluster computers, and can be used for other tasks. They can automatically become available to run cluster jobs according to a weekly availability policy that you configure (for example, every night on weekdays and all day on weekends), or they can be brought online manually, depending on the configuration that you choose. This guide provides step-by-step procedures for adding workstation nodes to your HPC cluster.
