  ACCELLERANT was developed by a company cal= led ASPEED, which has been out of business for awhile now.  ACCELERANT= was actually a load balancing toolkit, which isn't especially relevant to = NONMEM. But, they also were in the business of developing parallel software= , and by all accounts were pretty good at it.  They came out with two = versions of ACCELLERANT for NONMEM (used ACCELERANT, but real trick was par= allel NONMEM).  Version 1 was not parallelized, just started with a va= riety of initial estimates and took the one that converged first (not very = clever or useful IMHO).  They had a least a beta of a true parallelize= d version (http://www.= ecpag.org/2006/5_MarkSale.pdf).
This worked, pretty well (again, in = my humble opinion ;-)), and could have been run on pretty much any of the e= nvironments you mention, could also be run on a simple LAN, a grid computin= g environment or in theory, a VPN accross the internet.

Dear NM users,
Some time ago there was a test case of using NONMEM with = Accellerant. Could anyone please share reviews about using ACCELLERANT with= NONMEM, in a cluster environment of multi-core multi-CPUs?
