Default Can a home-built supercomputer be connected to another supercomputer?

Hello everyone.

I first would like to thank everyone who answers my question.



I plan on building an 8-Gigabit supercomputer in the future but I am so new to the whole thing that I have yet to even learn how to install video cards.

To those who have experience or knowledge about computer clustering, can one connect a set of clustered computers to another set of clustered computers?

Again, thanks.

You are going to want to probably go to a forum that deals with clustered computers. To my knowledge not many here will be able to help you with that.

Start small. Get one server up and running before worrying about clusters. What OS do you plan on running? I know most Windows server OSes have Clustering as one of the roles you can configure. It's not the easiest thing in the world to set up, though. So, like I said, start small...
