This paper describes an environment (API and runtime) for fast remote executions in the context of NOWs using high performance networks and low cost multiprocessors. This environment is based on the usual client/broker/server architecture. It is designed and optimized for the features of local area networks. The main result of the early performance measurements is a 50’s remote execution overhead.
