An Introduction to QNX Transparent Distributed Processing

Imagine if any device in a network could access the hardware resources of any other device as easily as devices now share data. In this paper we introduce QNX transparent distributed processing (TDP), and explain how this technology can be used to connect disparate devices into a single logical computer. We present examples of how TDP can be used to meet requirements ranging from reducing hardware component counts to building fault-tolerant systems with hundreds of processors.
