No longer relevant,
This review is from: In Search of Clusters (2nd Edition) (Paperback)
I wish there would be a book like this with today's (2011) perspective. The world has changed and unfortunately this book has become a history book.
The book was written before SMP became ubiquitous, before virtual machines with massive multi-threading, before application servers with clustering, before widespread use of web technologies.
But it provides an interesting history of HW based clustering, clustered batch processing and scientific parallel processing capabilities.
