QUOTE(vsingh @ Jan 26 2006, 10:53 PM)a group of pc's clustered together all into one "computer" but over a network; all the work to be done is distributed among all the pc's on the network
linux virtual server is one way to do this:http://www.linuxvirtualserver.org/
and so is LTSP (linux terminal server project), which is ideal for a folding farm:http://www.ltsp.org/
I was hoping someone would add some of the better programs out there as I am too new to this area.
I did some checking and there is a beta 2 out for Microsoft (clustering?) server.
It seems that MikeySoft wants in the clustering game. Maybe they already are and I just dont know it. :>
It just seems like with processing power costs down and opteron and 64 bit prices low that this would be a prime area for experimintation. Heck I saw a skid of durons I thought about bidding on but I held back as energy costs are important right now. I have a few computers here that together would be hard to beat for what I need and want to do.
I know Ill be getting my hands dirty as I have a technet subscription. I want to try out the other flavors also If I have the time.
Thanks so much for the info.
