Massively parallel high-performance computing

In computing, massively parallel refers to the use of a large number of processors (or separate computers) to perform a set of coordinated computations in parallel (simultaneously). [Wikipedia]

In this project you will learn about the different types of massively parallel computing systems and for which types of applications they are currently used. We will explore topics from large scale grids to GPUs and pocket sized super-commuters.
