Re: [K12OSN] OT: Hardware question for thin client



The problem with that is if an openmoxis node is rebooted, it will generally kill the application and hang the machine that it was launched from. A server cluster makes much more sense for things like this.

Dennis,
the sane way is to use the *servers* for the cluster and to keep
the clients simple and cheap. The justification is rather simple: serers
stay up, terminals wink in and out of existence. beefing up the servers
makes sense - all gain advantage, beefing up terminals yields no real
advantage. think *thin* terminal *fat* severs. julius



...and openMosix cluster the "fat servers" on the backend! Surely someone out there is at least doing that!!
