One of the many examples of what is possible with cluster computing. This is the homepage of a 140 processor Alpha based cluster. This is 47.7 GFLOPS on a Linpack benchmark, for $ 300.000 in 1998.

The TONS project has a homepage at The source code for the latest released implementations is also available there for download. The homepage is kindly hosted by Skåne/Sjælland Linux User Group.
