openMosix Cluster for Linux

openMosix is a a set of extensions to the standard Linux kernel allowing you to build a cluster of out of off-the-shelf PC hardware. openMosix scales perfectly up to thousands of nodes. You do not need to modify your applications to benefit from your cluster (unlike PVM, MPI, Linda, etc.). Processes in openMosix migrate transparently between nodes and the cluster will always auto-balance.

    Release Notes: This port to Linux 2.6 is a rewrite of openMosix that includes the first port of openMosix to the AMD Opteron. openMosix 2.6 moves much of the patch's code from the kernel to user space. This brings a very significant improvement which provides improved performance, makes user land tools easier to implement, and most significantly, simplifies porting to new kernel versions including AMD Opteron, Intel EM64T, and PowerPPC.
