High Throughput Computing (HTC)
High Throughput Computing (HTC) is a computing paradigm that focuses on executing a large number of tasks over an extended period of time. It is characterized by the ability to handle a vast number of tasks in a parallel or distributed manner, with the goal of maximizing the overall throughput of the system.
HTC is commonly used in scientific and engineering applications, where a large number of simulations, computations, or data processing tasks need to be performed. Examples of HTC systems include grid computing, cloud computing, and volunteer computing, which all rely on a distributed computing infrastructure to handle a high volume of tasks.
The main advantage of HTC is its ability to provide high computational capacity to researchers and scientists, enabling them to run complex simulations and analyze large datasets at scale. It allows for the efficient utilization of computing resources, reducing the time and cost required to complete scientific experiments and engineering projects.
