Well, for a lot of money someone could :)

Seriously, there is a cluster version of MySQL


In addition, due to nature of your configure options, you seem to be
assuming that if you compile a program with an "mpi compiler" things
automatically become parallel. Sorry, but here is the hard truth about

 - Programs must be written to explicit use multiple
   processors or clusters nodes. There are few if any
   shortcuts. You have to look at the code and understand
   what it is trying to do.

 - MPI is a library. One way to parallelize a code is to add
   MPI calls to the code and compile with the "mpi compilers"
   (which by the way are just wrapper functions that add
    various paths and options to the underlying compiler)

 - Resources:

   Check out Robert Brown's excellent tutorial series on ClusterMonkey
   (Robert -- I just saved you a few paragraphs in your response)


   Plus if you want to understand the issues, check out
   Parallel Programming as well:


Hope this helps.
