The Power to Parallel from Everywhere
What is parallel computing?
Parallel computing is a type of computing in which many calculations or the execution of processes are carried out simultaneously on several processors.
The idea is based on the the fact that large problems can often be divided into smaller ones, which can then be solved at the same time.
?What is a cluster
A cluster of computers is a group of computers that are connected and work together in a coordinated manner, so that in many ways they can be considered as one. The computers in the cluster are usually connected via a local area network.
Computer clusters are typically used to improve the speed and / or reliability of a single computer by providing a better cost-benefit ratio than a single computer in terms of performance or reliability.
What is Top500?
Top500 is a university project that ranks the top 500 supercomputer computers (not distributed computers) in the world. The objective of the project is to provide reliable information on the development of computing power of supercomputers in the world. In May 1993, the first Top500 list was published. Updates to the list are published twice a year. Since 1993, the computer's performance ranked first match Moore's Law.
Linux is an important example of free and open source software. Linux kernel source code is available for free use, change, and distribution to anyone. There are cases where an entire Linux distribution consists of free software or open source software.
