The advantage is a single global namespace for various things:
"Technology pieces include: membership, single root and single init,
cluster filesystems and DLM, single process space and process
migration, load leveling, single and shared IPC space, device space
and networking space, and single management space"
It looks more like a giant SMP than a traditional cluster. This should
make it easier to program.
