JUNGLE COMPUTING

38.1 Jungle Computing

38.2 Jungle Computing System

The application of high-performance and Distributed Computing in scientific practice has become more important among the most available platforms such as clusters, grids and cloud systems. These infrastructures are now undergoing many changes due to the integration of core technologies, providing speed improvements for selected compute kernels. As distributed and high-performance computing is becoming more heterogeneous and hierarchical, complexity in programming is increased. Further, these complexities arise due to an urgent desire for scalability and issues like data distribution, heterogeneity in software and hardware availability. Scientists were forced to use ...
