  2. Hi there,

    There are a number of approaches you can take to
    cluster deployment with Linux and a number of pre-
    included and other technologies which are applicable.

    It all really depends exactly what you are looking to
    cluster eg which services? Or are you writing some
    data anlysis tool you want to run seamlessly over
    a number of systems??

    Making a service reside on both servers and be
    provided to the client on a round-robin basis for
    example is very easily accomplished using in-build
    routing and/or DNS technologies.

    Provide some more details and I'll see if I can
    point you in the right direction.

    Cheers,

    Dave.

    What a deal.

    Firstly, methinks it's really hard to form a "cluster" out of two PCs
    (because it will _never_ get You near the idea of clustering), second-
    ly, I take it as a prerequisite to know what You want to achieve with
    this cluster in the first place (depending on that is the direction to
    choose).


    Happy clustering, Jack.

    Well, I built an OpenMosix cluster out of 8 Pentium machines. OpenMosix works
    by moving jobs to where they could be best completed. Check it out at
    http://openmosix.sourceforge.net/, you can visit the page for my cluster
    at http://nuwen.net/~digi/cluster/.
    Good luck, I sure had fun.
