I just want to clarify if "Beowulf" is a pure compute only cluster. By this I mean if it is used only for number crunching. Or is it can be used as Fail-Over cluster in production environments like DATA-CENTERS where the data-uptime is of utmost importance. Can we use Beowulf for Mission critical database environments like SAP or Oracle implementations also.

What are the exact uses of a Beowulf.
