multicomputer

A computer made up of several computers. The term generally refers to an architecture in which each processor has its own memory rather than multiple processors with a shared memory. A multicore computer, although it sounds similar, would not be a multicomputer because the multiple cores share a common memory. See parallel computing and multicore.
