Massively parallel system and scalability, Computer Engineering

Massively Parallel System

Refers to a parallel computer system having a great number of processors. The number in a great number of keeps increasing and currently it means more than 1000.

Scalability

Refers to a parallel system's (software/hardware) ability to exhibit a proportionate increase in (parallel) accelerate with the addition of more processors. Features that contribute to scalability include:

Hardware - particularly memory- Network communications and CPU bandwidths:

  • Parallel overhead related
  • Application algorithm
  • Characteristics of your coding and specific application
