Another checkpointing solution from the HPC world is Kerrighed.

Kerrighed (http://www.kerrighed.org, GPL patches available for Linux 2.6.20) supports
transparent process checkpointing, and much more as a Single System Image operating system for
clusters.

I guess both OpenSSI and openMosix bears mention, too. We used to run a small oM cluster, and
for many tasks, it was a really easy way to get a lot of parallelism - often simply using
"make -j", letting "make" spawn parallel processes, and oM distribute jobs across the cluster.
