The case for promoting Linux clusters over traditional supercomputers has focused on hardware affordability. Open source architectures based on standards-based multicore CPUs promise to make high-performance computers (HPCs) affordable and accessible to a mass market of mainstream technical computing users, proponents argue. What were yesterday’s large proprietary systems costing a quarter million dollars are today very cost-effective Linux clusters costing $20K or so.

OpenSourceMag: Clustering is a way to create a system where computers gain access to each others' data and resources. In principle, this adds more computing power and redundancy to the system; however, practical implementations often consume more resources due to the overhead associated with synchronization of facilities in different computers.
