openMosix 2.6 and AMD Opteron™ Port Released

Bruce Knox writes "Cupertino (April 14, 2005) The openMosix Project has announced the release of openMosix version 2.6.

Moshe Bar, openMosix founder and project leader, has announced the port of openMosix to Linux 2.6. This rewrite of openMosix includes the first port of openMosix to the AMD Opteronâ¢.

openMosix 2.6 for Opteron was first installed at the University of Pisa.

openMosix 2.6 moves much of the patchâs code from the kernel to user space. This brings a very significant improvement which provides improved performance, makes user land tools easier to implement, and most significantly, simplifies porting to new kernel versions including AMD Opteronâ¢, Intel® EM64T, and PowerPPC.

openMosix is a Linux kernel extension for single-system image (SSI) clustering that allows building a cluster from ordinary networked computers. Applications benefit without modification specifically for openMosix.
