Re: [Linux-cluster] Selling computation time



I know of a special purpose (Ruby on Rails hosting) in place and available as you're asking:

http://www.engineyard.com

:-)

This cluster is sold in sub-machine units called "slices" which are Xen instances. These Xen slices are grouped into environments which share a GFS via AoE.

We provide this shared cluster service, in addition to private cluster hosting, and complete cluster-in-a-cabinet packages.

I wonder then if there would be potential buyers for cluster time. I've been browsing, not too deep, the net, and I've not found (yet) any information of someone selling cluster time.

And when clusters come into place, I guess this is one of the right places to ask ...
