Projects / dispy


dispy is a Python framework for parallel execution of computations by distributing them across multiple processors in a single machine (SMP), or among many machines in a cluster or grid. The computations can be standalone programs or Python functions. dispy is well suited for the data parallel (SIMD) paradigm where a computation is evaluated with different (large) datasets independently (similar to Hadoop, MapReduce, Parallel Python). dispy features include automatic distribution of dependencies (files, Python functions, classes, modules), client-side and server-side fault recovery, scheduling of computations to specific nodes, encryption for security, sharing of computation resources if desired, and more.
