CLUSTERING DEFINITION (continued): …  in some cases. One of the main ideas of cluster computing is that, to the outside world, the cluster appears to be a single system.A common use of cluster computing is to load balance traffic on high-traffic Web sites. A Web page request is sent to a "manager" server, which then determines which of several identical or very similar Web servers to forward the request to for handling.
