The products that have changed the course of civilization have been a deft combination of technical innovation and marketplace demand that sparked a revolution. That's what we are experiencing today with parallel computing. Scalable parallel systems are headed for bigger and better things down the line -- a revolution that is now here. It's the way customers will solve large problems in the future. Like most revolutions it is driven by the confluence of technology innovation and strong market demand. These revolutions happen when people take products and do things with them that were not anticipate. Parallel computers promise to change the face of computing, making possible all kinds of sophisticated, powerful, complex new applications. We stand on the threshold of a breakthrough technology for science and education, as well as for business and industry across the board.
