Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"With Turbolinux Inc.'s EnFuzion, it's no longer computing
for the masses but supercomputing by the masses."
"The software will enable small to midsize companies to
efficiently harvest wasted workstation power by clustering
multiplatform networked PCs, workstations and servers, thus
attaining supercomputer-level power for performing computationally
intensive calculations over multiple CPUs."
"eWeek Labs' tests showed that EnFuzion's ability to create
supercomputing clusters will be invaluable for corporate settings
with home-developed, computationally heavy and intensive
"The software, which began shipping in July, is flexible enough
to accommodate the latency inherent in heavy-duty calculations.
Problems can be parallelized, and high network latency does not
