announced their 8- processor "personal" cluster in a mid-tower-sized box.
Starting at $4500, you get 8 Celeron 800MHz processors, each with 256MB
RAM and a 100Mbps ethernet connection. The box also has an integrated
100Mbps switch. Plus it's sexy." Perhaps less sexy, but for a lot less
money, you can also run a cluster of Linux (virtual) machines on your
desktop on middle-of-the-road hardware. See this followup on Grant Gross's
recent piece on Virtual Machines over at Newsforge.
