Distributed Computing

In the early dates of computer use, time was shared on – often a single – very expensive resource and serial processing was the norm. Current technologies and computing have become increasingly parallel and distributed, however: by running processes in parallel, more complex computation can be done. But this is harder than it looks and the HPC community is having a hard time keeping its promises. The exceptions to this are called “Embarrassingly Parallel problems” such as Genomics simulations, Biology, Electronics problems etc. The industry is realizing more and more that algorithms will need to be changed to promote distributed computing and.
