Proposes a distributed computing environment, called the Virtual Cube (VC), to support arbitrarily large binary hypercube computing on a cluster of homogeneous workstations that are interconnected by an Ethernet LAN. The embedding concept between binary hypercube parallel architectures is introduced, and the concept of a cluster of computers interconnected through a computer network. In VC, a SIMD parallel language called VCPL (VC Parallel Language) is provided. The advantages of the VC system are that (a) it can be considered as a practical and economical binary hypercube machine, and (b) it brings parallel solutions on a binary hypercube directly into distributed applications. Currently, a VC prototype is implemented on NeXT workstations
