:Clustering over LAN or WAN is good, but aren't high speed links 'icing
:on the cake'? It's possible to be able to do either/or isn't it?
Algorithms designed to operate over a WAN will work just as well over
a high speed link. But algorithms that are designed to work on high
speed links tend not to work all that well in a WAN environment. For
example, someone who doesn't have to worry about a ping time of 25 ms
might design a simpler cache coherency mechanism that depends more on
fast full duplex communication to be efficient.
