The first cell also comprises a second processor that establishes the partition within the multiprocessing computing system based on the partition identifier, and executes a single operating system across the partition. In the event the established partition successfully includes the first and second cells, the first and second cells execute the single operating system across the partition. Because the cells themselves perform the partitioning process, scalability may be achieved more easily. Moreover, the overall cost of the system may be reduced because a dedicated processor may no longer be required to perform partitioning.01-21-2010
