Parallel Platform Packages (PPPs)
A Parallel Platform Package (PPP) is used with a particular teaching module and an appropriate corresponding platform resource. Learn more>>
The available PPPs that we provide information about are found in the collection below.
Most Parallel Platform Package libraries/languages require certain platform resources, such as a cluster or a multicore machine. Information about which platform resource is needed for a particular PPP can be found on the PPP page, or you can learn more about each type of resource.

WebMapReduce is a simple web-based user interface for creating and submitting Hadoop Map-Reduce jobs in practically any language. It is ideally suited for use in the introductory computer science classroom, requiring very little programming experience to write massively parallel programs.
Bootable Cluster CD
The Bootable Cluster CD (BCCD) is a software platform designed to allow parallel programming and distributed computing instruction to concentrate on the education and not the computing infrastructure necessary for it. It is an open source Knoppix-based live CD that provides the tools necessary to teach parallel and distributed computing (e.g., GNU compiler suite, multiple MPI bindings, OpenMP, CUDA, Java) that can be run on either a single system or on a network of computers that are automatically configured using custom networking tools to form an ad hoc temporary cluster.
Pi's-To-Go provides students, both CS and non-CS alike, with an affordable, engaging, and familiar environment to learn the hardware and software principles of Parallel and Distributed Computing (PDC). Costing $450 in total, Pi's-To-Go provides modular hardware that helps students learn to apply PDC to their fields, to prepare them to handle the next generation of web servers, data centers and supercomputers.
Remora offers a free, secure, scalable, and virtual cluster for students and instructors to explore principles of Parallel and Distributed Computing (PDC). Remora is a virtual, application based cluster that runs entirely in user space and requires no installation. Because of this, Remora is a free cluster that can be carried in the pocket of an instructor or student from class to class, to quickly convert an existing computer lab into a cluster.
