Hi Rasool, I dont know mpi functionalities, but I readed this on wikipedia:

"There is no particular piece of software that defines a cluster as a
Beowulf. Commonly used parallel processing libraries include Message
Passing Interface (MPI) and Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM). Both of
these permit the programmer to divide a task among a group of
networked computers, and collect the results of processing. Examples
of MPI software include OpenMPI (OpenMPI) or MPICH (MPICH). There are
additional MPI implementations available."

source:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beowulf_%28computing%29

Maybe your software product implements a comunications over mpi and
without need one service cluster, maybe your medicinal software can
works like a distribute cluster.

You should read more on the official website about installation
architecture, functionalities, etc, but If your product works over MPI
communication proccess I think LVS or other similar products are not
needed


Regards!
