Question: Is HPC Grid toolbox obsolete

December 13 2012 Christopher2222 3844


While looking over some old Maple 9.5 applications I came across two applications requiring the HPC Grid computing toolbox for maple. 

Now that parallel computing is becoming the norm and parallel code tools are included with newer Maple versions.  Has this toolbox just been integrated into Maple?  or are they two totally different entities altogether.  I am sensing the toolbox is to deal with multiple computer systems as the parallel code tools already in Maple deals with multi cores and processors within a single system.  Am I right about that?  Is that Grid Toolbox obsolete? 

How does the speed of using the Grid toolbox of old compare to newer Maple?
