Default Clustering CPU's?

Does anyone know how to cluster cpu's? I guess it's combining cpu's or computers together so they work in tandem. If so give me some info or a website that i might be able to found out how to do this. thanks.

Clustering Services?

You would need an OS that can cluster... Linux, UNIX, Windows 2000 Advanced/Datacenter Server.

You can't cluster CPUs, you can cluster groups of computers.

Yeah - thats why it doesn't happen that much - you need a big expensive OS and more than one computer!

I think so - the correct cabling - not entirely sure what that would be though so you'd have to look into it. But as far as I know that is all you'd need; not cheap though, or too easy!

Yes, but they are put into groups.
