See? Crazy!

In all seriousness though, it seems that they do similar things but my
bet is that one is considered more enterprisey.

Just did a quick Google, and lookie here:

Enterprisyness is sometimes the difference between MPI and other
distributed computing environments. Oh well, keeps us interested, doesn't
it? Besides, variety is the spice of life ;-)
