About the Name of the Cluster
The 300-node cluster is called "HKU Gideon Cluster" or "HKU Gideon 300 Cluster". The name "Gideon 300" is derived from Gideon's 300 warriors.

The LORD said to Gideon, "With the three hundred men that lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands. Let all the other men go, each to his own place."
