"Linux could vault into the datacentre with 1024-node high availability clusters within two years if an ambitious clustering architecture, now being drafted, gains industry and community support."

"First design specifications from the new project -- Linux Cluster Cabal -- are aimed at breaking the ceiling of today's commercial Unix-based clusters."

"The project's team -- including Larry McVoy, president of BitMover, and the former Sun Microsystems and SGI engineer who led Sun's first clustering initiative, Stephen Tweedie, who heads Linux file system development, and Peter Braam of Stelia Computing and leader of Carnegie Mellon University's Coda distributed file system -- first met in secret in August to devise a clustering architecture that satisfies both commercial data processing and HPC (high performance computing) requirements."
