Depends what you mean by Beowulf of course :-)
If we expand the definition to include Clusters of Workstations, or batch
then yes. People like car manufacturers, aerospace companies running
Render farms for movie production. I guess financial institutions running
Monte Carlos also.
The Beowulf list however will (quite rightly) set the definition tighter, to
a parallell cluster using MPI or PVM, and commodity hardware.
Then I admit not to have much knowledge of uses in the Enterprise.
