"Cplant" parallel computing tool

Author: JT Smith

From Slashdot: "Sandia National Laboratories has released its "Cplant" massively
parallel processing software. This is related to the software used in their ASCI Red
supercomputer, and eliminates several scalability problems to allow hundreds of
nodes for algorithms which can't be parallelized for Beowulf-type clusters. This is now
number 2 on the TOP500 supercomputer list. The press release refers to "licensing
terms", but the license is the GPL."
