And in CORBA , and similar systems , there ’ s the concept of an object request broker allowing objects to run and be accessed remotely in a distributed system without knowing details of where or how the object executes . run on the Supercloud handling the details of code execution and data locality automatically and efficiently .
So whether you write your code by breaking it up into functions or ship large pieces of functionality or entire programs , the foundations of the Supercloud means that your code benefits from its efficiency . And more .
