Who is Responsible?
Author: Douglas Eadline

The phrase, if I only had one throat to choke often comes to mind when thinking about support for clusters. On the one hand, the history and the nature of clusters promotes a kind-of do your own thing methodology.

And, next on the list is to figure out what it all means. Not an easy problem. Insights often come from searching the genome with the hope it will yield some biological sentence or paragraphs that helps us understand the mystery of life. This searching it turns out has an insatiable appetite for compute cycles.
