What is Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM)?

Definition of Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM)

Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM) is a software enables in running multiple machines with different platforms to run a single computer task that is distributed. It is effective in creating high level computing power from a distributed parallel processor at a low cost. It is suitable for operations that require high accuracy.

Brief Description of PVM

The parallel virtual machine which is also known as PVM is a software program created at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the year 1989. It used to run different machines with different operating systems or platforms as a single distributed task via a network. It enables the high standard of computation to take place with accuracy and at a minimal cost by utilizing aggregate power and memory of different computers. PVM is portable with a source that can be obtained for free. It enables users with the following advantages:

  • Large solutions to be performed at a minimum cost
  • Provide solutions to many scientific, industrial and medical problems.
  • PVMs can be used as educational tools to teach PVM programming
  • Highly accurate results.
