PRESIDENT OF KENDALL SQUARE RESEARCH IS BULLISH ABOUT SHORT TERM PROSPECTS FOR MASSIVE PARALLEL PROCESSING

By CBR Staff Writer

In contrast to the reticence of other developers, Henry Burkhardt, chairman, president and chief executive of Waltham, Massachusetts-based Kendall Square Research Corp is bullish about the short term prospects for massive parallel processing, Electronic News reports: at a recent conference in Massachusetts he predicted that the new systems would soon come to dominate sales for new applications above the $50,000 level; It’s going to happen very quickly, much more quickly than people are anticipating because they haven’t yet gotten it into their minds what this kind of programming architecture means, he said with reference to his company’s new 1,088 processor KRS1; more cautious predictions suggest that it will take between five and 10 years for any parallel headway to be made against conventional mainframes, which still offer a much broader base of applications.
