Peer-to-peer support for Matlab-style computing
MetadataShow full item record
Peer-to-peer technologies have shown a lot of promise in sharing the remote resources effectively. The resources shared by peers are information, bandwidth, storage space or the computing power. When used properly, they can prove to be very advantageous as they scale well, are dynamic, autonomous, fully distributed and can exploit the heterogeneity of peers effectively. They provide an efficient infrastructure for an application seeking to distribute numerical computation. In this thesis, we investigate the feasibility of using a peer-to-peer infrastructure to distribute the computational load of Matlab and similar applications to achieve performance benefits and scalability. We also develop a proof of concept application to distribute the computation of a Matlab style application.
