Saint writes "BioCryst, a pharmaceutical development company, is using a Linux NetworX cluster to help create new disease fighting drugs: '...The massive amount of data computation inherent in drug design typically requires the power of a supercomputer-class system. Cluster technology is a method of linking multiple computers, or compute nodes, together to form a powerful, unified system. Linux NetworX clusters can match the performance of traditional supercomputers for a fraction of the cost.' Full press release here."
