NetSolve provides remote access to computational resources, both hardware and software. It is built upon standard Internet protocols, like TCP/IP sockets.
The NetSolve system is comprised of a set of loosely connected machines meaning that these machines may be on the same local, wide or global area network, and may be administrated by different institutions and organizations.
Moreover, the NetSolve system is able to support these interactions in a heterogeneous environment, i.e. machines of different architectures, operating systems and internal data representations can participate in the system at the same time.
