This article is part 3 of a 3-part series. In Part 1, you got an introduction to the current clustering technologies available for Linux and and an introduction to openMosix. In Part 2, you got a fully-functional openMosix cluster configured and running. Now, in Part 3, you’ll see some ways to use openMosix to tackle computing challenges with clusters built on IBM xSeries servers running Intel® Xeon™ Making use of performance-enhancing technologies such as Intel’s Hyper-Threading Technology.

I was looking for something like Oracle RAC + Clustered Filesystem on this kind of cluster. That’s probably not OpenMosix’s fault – even though it might be, because RAC may not run on that kind of cluster – but rather Oracle’s and the Linux guys’ who work on logical volume managers for Linux.
Interesting article, and interesting software (OpenMosix). I’ll keep an eye on this.
.. for compile farms. gota love some make -j9
