Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In parallel computing, an embarrassingly parallel workload is one for which little or no effort is required to separate the problem into a number of parallel tasks. This is often the case where there exists no dependency between those parallel tasks. Embarrassingly parallel problems tend to require little or no communication of results between tasks, and are thus different from distributed computing problems that require communication between tasks, especially communication of intermediate results. They are easy to perform on server farms which do not have any of the special infrastructure used in a true supercomputer cluster.show more
