TCP Linda is a proven industry standard for parallel programming and well known for reliability and efficiency. Original Linda, introduced in the mid-1980s, was the first commercial product to implement virtual shared memory (VSM) for supercomputers and large workstation clusters. TCP Linda is content-addressable, not address-based, making it much easier to build applications and fully utilize hardware capacity. Cost-effectiveness, speed and ease of use all are advantages of using TCP Linda.
TCP Linda technology is embedded in versions of Gaussian 03, the computational chemistry program based on the methodology for which John Pople won the 1998 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Other uses by such companies as Lehman Brothers and Amerada Hess have proven the power of Linda's parallel processing capabilities.
