Building high-performance clusters with OpenSSI
The OpenSSI framework rearranges processes for easy and transparent clustering.
A Single System Image (SSI) cluster is a collection of separate computers that appear as a single multi-processor system. SSI clustering platforms are typically implemented at the kernel level. In SSI high-performance clusters, the program does not even have to know it is running in a cluster. The only requirement is that the program spawn multiple processes. These processes then pass transparently among the computers in the cluster.
