1.1. Computer Hardware Options for Distributed Computing

You can create individual processes on either a single computer or a cluster of computers.

1.1.1. Single computer

You should be able to run these examples on any laptop or server that has the required software installed. Since almost all machines these days contain multicore processors, you can use those multiple cores effectively by having your program start up multiple processes. The examples in this book will show you haw to do that.

1.1.2. Compute cluster

Any type of cluster of computers can run these examples, including Raspberry Pis or other SBCs networked together.
