In this paper we propose a distributed computing environment, namely, Virtual-Cube (VC), to support arbitrarily large binary hypercube computing on a cluster of homogeneous workstations that are interconnected by ethernet LAN. The embedding concept between binary hypercube parallel architectures and a cluster of computers interconnected through computer networks is introduced. Upon Virtual-Cube, an SIMD parallel language VCPL is provided. The advantages of Virtual-Cube system include (a) it can be considered as a pratical and economical binary hypercube machine, and (b) it brings the parallel solutions on binary hypercube directly into distributed applications. Currently, a prototype of Virtual-Cube is implemented on NeXT workstations.
