Essay should be five pages of content presenting an explanation of computer clustering, benefits, challenges, and potential applications.

Minimum concepts to cover and explain in the essay are: clusters, high availability, load balancing, COTS vs. blade clusters, network connectivity for computers in a cluster.

Paper should conform to the APA style and hence will be longer because, of course, you will include a title page, abstract, table of contents, and a references page in addition to the actual content pages required
