We describe design issues and preliminary considerational factors for highly parallel commercial computer design. The design issues described in this paper include application area analysis, scalability, availability, network topology and memory hierarchy. We explain how these issues are related to each other and how they affect the system performance. We then describe the system architecture of TICOM-IV, a highly parallel commercial computer, and show how the design issues and the trade-offs are taken into consideration in the course of the system design. Then the architectural model is simulated in order to optimize the system performance. The simulation result shows that TICOM-IV has good performance scalability. This paper also includes some findings in the development trend for parallel computer systems from a survey of 11 commercialized parallel computers
