Recent advances in computing architectures and networking are bringing parallel computing systems to the masses so increasing the number of potential users of these kinds of systems. In particular, two important technological evolutions are happening at the ends of the computing spectrum: at the \"Small\" scale, processors now include an in-creasing number of independent execution units (cores), at the point that a mere CPU can be considered a parallel shared-memory computer; at the \"Large\" scale, the cloud computing paradigm allows applications to scale by offering resources from a large pool on a pay-as-you-go model.
