Better measures of availability that incorporate end-user experience will lead to meaningful benchmarks and progress in providing high-availability services. In(More)
Clusters of PCs are increasingly popular as cost-effective platforms for supercomputer-class applications. Given recent performance improvements in graphics accelerators, clusters are similarly attractive for demanding graphics applications. We describe the design and implementation of Lightning-2, a display subsystem for such a cluster. The system scales(More)
