Question about building a cluster

Recommended Posts

I work in little company that has a bout 20 comupters in office use, all running MDV 2005LE. Some machines are quite old and slow. Is wise / worth to build a cluster on these computers?

No, you can't build a cluster and then still use each machine in the cluster individually. Clustering is more about using a group of systems together to do very computationally intensive tasks - think supercomputer.

Hmm ok, but what can I do speed up a bit the slower computers. I have like 3-4 A64-s 3400+ with 512M DDR and they are doing the same job as 1.8G celeron with 256M DDR.

You could use them as terminal servers and convert the slow machines into thin clients, maybe?
