I'm part of a team completing the first Beowulf-style cluster available in
our area and I've a question that everyone asks? "Where does the name
Beowulf originate?" Essentially why did the NASA and Scyld guys call their
clustering technique/philosophy "Beowulf"? Is it just a fancy,
cool-sounding name, or is there a deeper meaning, possibly metaphor? Hope
someone knows because I get asked this about every 5 minutes on some
occassions and I don't have much of an answer.
