Google and IBM have teamed up to offer a curriculum and support for software development on large-scale distributed computing systems, to help students and write software for parallel computing applications.
So far six US universities have signed for the programme, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University and the University of Maryland. This relatively new form of parallel computing, that sometimes called cloud computing although had been in use in industry, it was not being taught in universities. IBM and Google have dedicated a cluster of several hundred computers, including PCs donated by Google and IBM BladeCenter and other servers, and the companies expect the cluster to grow to more than 1,600 processors.
