I'd like to announce "seppo" - simple embarrassingly parallel python.
This should be considered a very alpha version, and was released to the
public to gauge interest/reaction.
The map function is well-known in Python, allowing a single function to
be called on each member of an iterable sequence:
map( function, [1,2,3,4] )
The seppo module allows the same functionality, but distributed over
seppo.map_parallel( some_module.function, [1,2,3,4] )
In this case, each iteration may evaluate the function in a different
process, possibly in a different computer. The idea is a simple concept
and is hopefully natural transition for Python programmers to use the
power of multi-processor computers and clusters.
