Parallel processing and grid topologies

To maximize the IBM® InfoSphere® Information Server engine efficiency and throughput, create a parallel processing or grid topology.

In these topologies, the workload for each job is distributed across several processors. The processors can be located on the same computer or on different computers that are connected over a network. The parallel engine uses the processors and computers concurrently to complete each job. The parallel engine and the InfoSphere Information Server engine make up the engine tier.

You can configure the InfoSphere Information Server parallel framework for grid computing processing. Install a supported resource manager to enable the dynamic assignment of available computer nodes (physical computers) at run time yo.
