Other == Clustering Software
Authored by: buddha001 on Jan 14, '04 06:46:17PM

XGrid is the real unsung hero of MWSF 04. While the new iPods were a bit of a disappointment, the Servers were cool and Garageband rocks, Xgrid can revolutionize the mac.

When grumbling started a few months ago many of us saw the true potential. Xgrid along with the news of the Vtech cluster could help apple in the science area. If apple would take the time to help the Film/Video industry apply this technology, that's where the real advantage to Apple will be.

3D Graphics and Visual Effects companies will kill for programs that take advantage of Xgrid. Render farm software is nice, but 10s or 100s of computers in a facility working as one, even a few will make a huge difference.

I just hope apple makes this a free part of the OS, like they did with X11.
