parallel computing

Solving a problem with multiple computers or computers made up of multiple processors. It is an umbrella term for a variety of architectures, including symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), clusters of SMP systems, massively parallel processors (MPPs) and grid computing. See SMP, MPP, clustering, pipeline processing, vector processor, hypercube and grid computing.
