[WEBINAR] Bulletproof: How Today's Business Leaders Stay on Top


Definition - What does Computer-Intensive mean?

Computer intensive is a term that applies to any computing application that requires multiple computational resources, such as grid computing.

Techopedia explains Computer-Intensive

Grid computing uses a combination of computer resources to achieve a common goal. This distributed system can deal with a large number of files and process a large workload. Grid computing, therefore, is considered to be a computer-intensive process.

There is no precise measure of how much is "intensive." As technology improves over time, what was once an intensive application is easier to perform on cheaper hardware.
