"EnFuzion is a clustering technology designed to transform an enterprise's network of Linux, Unix, and Windows servers or workstations into a supercomputer. EnFuzion integrates transparently into an organization's operating environment without requiring any dedicated servers or workstations.

The concept behind EnFuzion is sometimes described as grid computing or extreme clustering. EnFuzion links computers within an enterprise's network and emulates a supercomputer by drawing on the idle processing power of multiple desktop computers and servers connected to the company network. Enterprises can thus take advantage of the aggregate computing power without compromising network security.

Using this technology, EnFuzion's dynamic prioritization capabilities can automatically match workload to existing computing resources. EnFuzion splits user jobs into separate, discrete components for parallel execution. This enables multiple resources to simultaneously process the information in significantly less time and using maximized resources. Furthermore, no special coding is required, so any application can be inserted into the EnFuzion network for parallel processing."
