We usually suggest a cluster for high availability
requirements...you have two servers running different apps
and acting as a fallback for the other.
Oracle 9i Real Application Clusters is an example of an app
making use of underlying clustering functionality.
You can also use clustering for load-balancing.


> Problem that can be solved using a cluster are 
> 1> Distributed Compilation of large programs e.g
> teambuilder/distcc
> 2> Image Rendering using Pov-Ray/other variants
> 3> Hypertext indexing / searching.
