A computer cluster is a group of two or more computers, or hosts, that are connected in a network and run in parallel to complete individual tasks. Turbonomic discovers clusters in your environment, and represents them in the Supply Chain. You can use clusters to specify scope for your Turbonomic session, for plans, for policies, and for charts.

In Turbonomic, you can configure placement policies that merge clusters. Turbonomic can use a Merge placement policy to move workloads across cluster boundaries. This creates a Supercluster.
