Cluster Computer

 Cluster Computer for Simulation

Recent advances in the development of high performance microprocessors and high speed networks make clusters of  PCs an appealing low cost platform for parallel computing. Advantages of Cluster Technology are: low cost commodity supercomputing, stable software, using de-facto-standards from open source, Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM), Linux, Network File System, and scalability
