Hardware wise there are 3 types of parallel processing systems available:1. SMP (symetric multiprocessing: multiple CPUs, shared memory, single OS)2. MPP (Massively Parallel Processing Systems: multiple CPUs each having a personal set of resources - memory, OS, etc, but physically housed on the same machine)3. Clusters: same as MPP, but physically dispersed (not on the same box & connected via high speed networks).DS offers 2 types of parallelism to take advantage of the above hardware:1. Pipeline Parallelism2. Partition Parallelism-hope this helps.Gary
