"Linux developer Terra Soft Solutions Inc. has announced a new portable 8-node Linux cluster designed for parallel processing and development. The system comes pre-configured with Terra Soft's Black Lab Linux implementation, and it's based on the iMac."

"Parallel processing provides greatly enhanced performance by dividing code execution across several different CPU's, each of which can execute commands simultaneously. Parallel processing can be a very expensive and unwieldy affair, either requiring an expensive computer system or a lab full of computers, all networked together. Terra Soft's Black Lab Linux cluster is essentially a free-standing rack-mount system: The cluster is built using off-the-shelf technology and has been designed for maximum portability -- it weighs about 150 pounds, sits less than two feet on a side, and has been equipped with casters to be able to move from location to location."
