Avoid proprietary software at all costs. Not because of this freedom
rant we're bound to in debian ;). It's just that cluster software should
be free because you'll *have* to fix it. :/

These cluster management systems usually target HA applications however.
You know, a web server can run as a cluster, blah. blah. Very commercial
oriented and less research oriented. So they aren't silver bullets.
