Have you ever wanted to build a supercomputer? Xgrid is a new technology preview from Apple that makes it easy to turn a group of Macs into a computation cluster. It is based on open, cross-platform standards like BEEP and ZeroConf networking, and opens the door to a whole new way to think about distributed computing. This session will provide details on Xgrid's architecture, protocols, and extensibility, as well as discuss how it can be used.
