By using the Dolphin PCI-ICS adapters with Linux Labs' updates to the MPICH libraries, Scyld/Beowulf goes to the next step of using Bproc, the Scyld unified process control program, over its 800 Megabyte/Sec backplane. This is further advanced by Linux Labs' add-on libraries for providing shmem 'get' and 'put' capabilities, which advances Linux-based clustering into functionality previously available only in the Cray and SGI environments.
