In a nutshell. Robert Porenta is one of the top clustering developers in
the world who helped build this product.

The talk we will give will be on Enfuzion which is a parallel processing 
software that takes an application and runs it in Parallel. It is similar
to how Beowulf but allows you to work across multiple platforms including
NT, UNIX, Solaris, PPC-Risc 6000, and Linux. It also differs from Beowulf
because you distribute jobs to already deployed workstations. With Beowulf you
need to have dedicated machines.

We will spend the time talking about how enfuzion takes advantage of idel
CPU cycles and can speed up existing applications but factors of unlimited 
proportion. For more information on Enfuzion please go to
www.turbolinux.com. Go to products and you will see enfuzion.
