Fellow Cluster Types
In the past, you may have seen or read about an effort called
"The Cluster Agenda". While it has had a slow start,
some solid progress has been made over the last six months.
The Agenda initiative has been migrated to a Wiki format
and is available at:
Others and myself have provided a "skeleton" on which to build a
community/industry resource like no other. This is YOUR resource. No
single person or small group of people can make this initiative as
successful as a community. I am therefore inviting the community to
contribute to a shared open resource from which all will benefit.
A more detailed description of the initiative (including rationale) is on
the Agenda Main Page. The elevator pitch is as follows:
What is the Agenda?
- a road map of best practices for Clustering
- a discussion of the challenge area facing the
What the Agenda is not.
- a standards document
- a buyers guide
Why should I care?
- The cluster community is vast. Do you know what
hardware/software/solutions are available or what
projects could help your efforts?
- When someone new enters the community, where do they look?
Where can they find a road map written by those
"that have been there before?"
There is more discussion on the Agenda pages. Take a look
and contribute. It is actually quite easy.
