To achieve peta-scale computing, it is anticipated that future systems will require 100,000?s of processors working in concert. The overwhelming size and complexity of such a system will require a computing environment that addresses the scalability of the file system, network, programming environment, and operating system. The architecture, out of practical necessity, will be that of a clustered system. While today there are numerous types of clusters and perhaps as many diverse cluster environments, none scale well to this level of complexity. Unfortunately, clusters present scaling challenges on even today?s smaller scale clusters. What is needed is a better way to deal with the complexity issues ? to abstract away the complexity from the application as well as the system. One such answer to the abstraction question is provided by scalable Single System Image (SSI) clustering. This tutorial will explore cluster based SSI requirements and will provide an in depth look at the Kerrighed cluster SSI solution.
