IIRC, ScaleMP is another distributed shared memory implementation, and
both software and hardware (SGI NUMALink machines?) implementations
are more expensive and less fault tolerant than shared nothing nodes
managed by some sort of cluster software.

Since rendering is mostly an embarrassingly parallel workload, it is
way easier to install & run something like Rocks cluster (or even
Platform-HPC), and it is not going to run any slower than on a ScaleMP
"cluster".
