Hello All!

Puting it bluntly, Beowulf just refers to the type of equipment used, that
is, commodity hardware and usually, Free OpenSource Software!

Beowulfs can impersonate a great many type of cluster types, from HA, HPC,
Grid, and so on :)

If you want a jerkier way of putting this, consider Beowulf a 'Trademark'!
You have BlueGenes, and so on, and you have Beowulf :)

Just that!

Beowulf, made in your own room :)
