Software and hardware requirements for some applications of parallel computing to industrial problems
parallel computing, paralell computing software requirements, parallel computing hardware requirements
We discuss the hardware and software requirements that appear relevant for a set of industrial applications of parallel computing, these are divided into 33 separate categories, and come from a recent survey of industry in New York State. The software discussions includes data parallel languages, message passing, databases, and high-level integration systems. The analysis is based on a general classification of problem architectures originally developed for academic applications of parallel computing. Suitable hardware architectures are suggested for each application. The general discussion is crystalized with three case studies: computational chemistry, computational fluid dynamics, including manufacturing, and Monte Carlo Methods.
