In cooperation with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Red Hat Software
is very proud to present Extreme Linux, also known as the Beowulf Project.
If you're into rocket science, you've come to the right place! Extreme
Linux will allow you to set up a computer cluster using parallel
processing (multiple machines acting as one computer).
Building a computer cluster with the OS and tools that are included in
this $29.95 CD-ROM product will provide researchers with radical improvements
in the amount of processing power available to them for a given dollar of
Having access to complete source code of these tools will allow the students,
researchers, and technical end users to understand this technology at a
level never before possible, resulting in a more effective, higher
performance computing platform.
