Linux Clustering

Operating System


The basic idea behind the "performance clustering" approach is to make a large number of individual machines act like a single very powerful machine. This type of cluster is best applied to large and complex problems that require tons of computing horsepower. Applications such as weather prediction, astronomy, and cryptographic research are prime candidates for high-performance clusters.
