One of the significant advances in cluster networks over the past two years is that it is now practical to connect up to tens of thousands of hosts with networks that have enormous and scalable total capacity, and in which the communication from a host to any other host has the same cost. This same-cost property is desirable because it allows computing processes to be assigned to hosts according to cluster-management or load-balancing considerations, and without regard for the mapping of the… CONTINUE READING
