Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"Parallel processing will be used pervasively in the future in a variety of systems, from workstations to mid-range and high-end services. The potential benefits are improved performance and cost/performance, reduced development cost and higher availability. This tutorial presentation describes various forms of parallel processing that are being explored today. These include clusters, multiprocessors and highly parallel processors. These approaches are illustrated by specific examples of different parallel systems directions currently being pursued at IBM."
