In this paper we will show the hardware and software implementation of the gforcr computing cluster operating in the LCD laboratory at the IAPS / INAF headquarters in Rome. The comput- ing system is used to perform Monte Carlo simulations using the GEANT4 toolkit in multithread mode. The simulations are designed to evaluate and reduce the background of the microcalorime- ter on board the ATHENA mission whose launch is expected in 2018.
