Parallel Processing Software

Definition - What does Parallel Processing Software mean?

Parallel processing software is a middle-tier application that manages program task execution on a parallel computing architecture by distributing large application requests between more than one CPU within an underlying architecture, which seamlessly reduces execution time. This is done by using specific algorithms to process tasks efficiently.

This term is also known as distributed processing software.

Techopedia explains Parallel Processing Software

Parallel processing software is used to solve large and complex back-end computations and programs. Such processing manages task division and distribution between processors, in addition to the entire low-level/hardware parallel computing architecture.

Parallel processing software’s primary purpose is to utilize processors to ensure that throughput, application availability and scalability provide optimal end user processing through the combination of two or more connected processors.
