Cluster computers provide a low-cost alternative to multiprocessor systems for many applications. Building a cluster computer is within the reach of any computer user with solid C programming skills and a knowledge of operating systems, hardware, andnetworking. This book leads you through the design and assembly of such a system, and shows you how to mearsure and tune its overall performance.

Distributed software turns a collection of networked computers into a distributed system. It presents the user with a single-system image and gives the system its personality.
