If "yet", you may then want to go for a hobbyist license, see

Depends on what is defined as a cluster, and what kind of clustring you

Have you looked at http://www.lustre.org and Braam's stuff in the docs?

That seems to be a VMS 4.4 Internals book.
I think it would be better with a more recent book like VAX/VMS 5.2 or
AXP 1.5.
Both of these are available at http://www.abebooks.com, search for:
vms internals.

You may also want to look at online docs at
http://www.openvms.compaq.com/doc/ (clusters included)

On the Unix side, you may want to look at
(It is based on the VMScluster, and has a cfs too)
