Clusters of workstations represent today a satisfactory alternative to MPPs and supercomputers in many areas of application. The rapidly reduction of the cost of high performance workstations/PCs makes this technology ever more available. Moreover, new concepts for the integration of individual workstations through Local Area Networks are emerging. High speed interconnection networks and optimized protocol system architectures are the most important objectives of current research in this field… CONTINUE READING
