Hi, i have a doubt about the strict concept of Beowulf cluster. Is a cluster
build with comodity hardware only?.. what's up when i build a cluster using
some tools as OSCAR, or ROCKS, etc on servers or using some kind of high speed
networks?.
If I have two Alpha servers with Linux and open source software conected by a
high speed network.. is this a beowulf cluster?.

Thanks for your answers ..
