Xgrid Technical Preview 2 is a distributed computing software technology from Apple Computer, Inc. Xgrid leverages the UNIX-based capabilities of Mac OS X to enable the rapid aggregation of Macintosh systems into a simple yet powerful computational grid which can run a wide range of standard and custom solutions with minimal code changes. To demonstrate the technology, the software is run on a networked rack of Xserve G5 servers and a PowerBook G4 laptop. The demonstration shows how Xgrid is utilized to distribute long-running batch and parallel jobs to a local grid of Mac OS X-based computers.
