Is Ice suitable for parallel computation?

Can Ice be a substitute of PVM and MPI?

    Hi Yunqiao Yin,

    You can write any distributed application with Ice, including high-performance parallel computation.

    However if you program in Fortran, or if you have a high-speed cluster interconnect such as Myrinet, MPI/PVM may be better suited for your computations. Ice does not offer a Fortran mapping; and as of now, Ice supports only TCP and UDP as the underlying network transport.
