Uso de Beowulf's como Servidores Web

Roberto Ferreira BrandãoRicardo de Oliveira Anido

Due to the increasing use of Internet services, popular web servers receive a high request for file rates, which demands the instalation of high processing power computers as web servers. The Beowulf architecture consists of clusters of off the shelf cpu's connected by a network. They have the advantage of offering the possibility of building at low cost, a high processing power computer. The architecture makes it more easy to implement scalable and fault tolerant servers. This paper presents a study about the possibility of using a beowulf computer as web server. Aspects like performance, scalability and fault tolerancy are discussed. Beowulf's simulations results are presented to show performance and scalability capacities and to analyze some requisition's flow characteristics.
