PVM Supported Architectures/OSs

PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) is a software package that permits a heterogeneous collection of Unix and NT computers hooked together by a network to be used as a single large parallel computer. Thus large computational problems can be solved more cost effectively by using the aggregate power and memory of many computers. With thousands of users, PVM has become the de facto standard for heterogeneous cluster computing world-wide. The source is available free thru netlib and has been compiled on everything from laptops to CRAYs.

Targeted Platforms:

PVM software is very portable. It has been used on all the follow systems. A virtual computer can be composed of a mixture of any of the these computers.
