> We're starting to look into using clusters for Monte Carlo calculations,
> and the suggestion has been put forward that we can use clusters of
> computers to run things like mail programs or server type applications,
> using the multi-processor capabilities of the cluster to ensure redundancy
> should a node fail.
> 
> Is a Beowulf cluster applicable for this, or is it a function that is more
> commonly used in the actual OS?
