openMosix Celebrates First Anniversary

The openMosix Project celebrates its first anniversary, having attracted thousands of users and built thousands of clusters in its first year. The project is a Linux kernel extension for single-system image clustering that turns a network of ordinary IA-32 computers into a supercomputer for Linux applications. It provides a reliable, fast, and cost-efficient SSI clustering platform that is linearly scalable and adaptive. openMosix integrates independent computers into a cluster, providing the user with what appears to be a single-machine Linux environment. The project is hosted on and has been used in various fields such as astrophysics, bioinformatics, medical, and genome research.
