outline.3 1. Multiple interconnected computers Cluster Computing - A form of parallel computing in which the computing platform is a group of interconnected computers (a cluster) For this course, we will use a small dedicated departmental cluster consisting of five servers: Four servers each with two Xeon processors and one server with four quad core Xeon processors, all interconnected thro a local Ethernet switch.
