"Turbolinux Inc.'s TurboCluster 4.0 is an inexpensive, fault-tolerant, Linux-based load balancer that will help Web administrators on tight budgets, but it can't replace hardware at large Web sites."
"PC Week Labs believes many sites will benefit immediately by deploying TurboCluster, which offers the fault tolerance and network load balancing lacking in Beowulf, an open-source performance-based clustering initiative that is the only widely available choice for Linux."
"Not only is TurboCluster capable, it's inexpensive. Two administrator server licenses cost $995. (TurboLinux sells them by the pair with failover in mind.) An unlimited site license is priced at $1,995. At those prices, a site running large arrays of legacy hardware on a shoestring budget will get plenty for its money."
