BigBatch is an image processing environment designed to process batches of thousands of monochromatic documents. One of the flexibilities and pioneer aspects of BigBatch is offering the possibility of working in distributed environments such as clusters and grids. This paper presents an overview of BigBatch image processing features and analyzes the results of a number of experiments devised to compare its cluster and grid configurations. Although preliminary results were published earlier on, the new data shown here that sheds new lights onto this aspect.
