  MasPar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
MasPar Computer Corporation was a minisupercomputer vendor that was founded in 1987 by Jeff Kalb.
The company was based in Santa Clara, California.
After Digital decided not to productize the research project, Kalb decided to start a company to sell this minisupercomputer.

Minisupercomputer was a class of computer that emerged in the mid-1980s.
As scientific computing in the form of vector processors became more popular, the need for lower-cost systems that might be used at the departmental level instead of the corporate level created a market opportunity for new computer vendors to enter the market.

In a deal slated to close this month, Floating Point has agreed to buy all the assets of Celerity, a San Diego-based computer manufacturer that lost $12.68 million in 1987.
A $2.5 million deal, the asset sale is risky because Floating Point essentially is buying the uncompleted Celerity 6000 minisupercomputer -- a high-speed, relatively...

A common mode of operation with a workstation is to run IRAF under a window system directly on the workstation which runs IRAF, accessing files either on a local disk, or on a remote disk via a network interface (NFS, IRAFKS, etc.).
It is also possible, however, to run the window system on the workstation, but run IRAF on a remote node, e.g., some powerful compute server such as a large UNIX server, a large VAX, vector minisupercomputer, supercomputer, etc., possibly quite some distance away.
This is done by logging onto the workstation, starting up the window system, logging onto the remote machine with rlogin, telnet, or whatever, and starting up IRAF on the remote node.

R & D: Minisupercomputer speeds novel enzyme research.@ HighBeam Research
Researchers at the Univ. of Wisconsin's (Madison) Institute for Enzyme Research are using an x-ray crystallography software package running on a minisupercomputer to reduce the time required to create accurate models of complex protein structures.
Using Yale Univ.'s (New Haven, CT) X-PLOR x-ray crystallography software package on an FPS Model 522EA computer system, chemists and biochemists at the institute are augmenting their own "chemical intuition" with state-of-the-art molecular modeling techniques.

A common mode of operation with a workstation is to run Sun/IRAF under SunView directly on the workstation which runs IRAF, accessing files either on a local disk, or on a remote disk via a network interface (NFS, IRAFKS, etc.).
It is also possible, however, to run SunView with gterm and imtool on the workstation, but run IRAF on a remote node, e.g., some powerful compute server such as a large Sun server, a large VAX, or a vector minisupercomputer or supercomputer, possibly quite some distance away.
This is done by logging onto the workstation, starting up SunView and a gterm window, logging onto the remote machine with rlogin, telnet, or whatever, and starting up IRAF on the remote node.
