What could you do with a 40,000 CPU laptop?

What if a large-scale cluster was available from within your laptop?

What if large-scale computing capacity could be instantly available?

What if you could scale your computation just by making slight changes to your code?

What if you could have your results streamed back interactively?

This is exactly what assistant professor Mahrad Sharifvaghefi from the University of Pittsburg was able to do.

Using Techila Distributed Computing Engine (DCE) and Google Cloud he was able to instantly attach 40,000 vCPU cores to his laptop to complete what would have been over 7 months of computing on the local cluster in just 48 Hours total runtime.
