Parallella 3 Year Anniversary

Posted by Adapteva (Creator)

It has now been 3 years since we launched the Parallella project on Kickstarter with the lofty goal of "democratizing access to parallel computing".  Starting with a clunky prototype and an understaffed team in 2012, Parallella has come a long but as the saying goes: "the proof is in the pudding". This post shares some of the stuff in the Parallella pudding.

The Parallella is making a difference and the project is gaining momentum. A big thank you to all for doing your part to make this happen!

A happy and peaceful 2016 to all.

Best wishes,


ps. As a small thank you to those of you made Parallella a possibility, we are dropping prices to $99 for the Desktop and $75 for the Microserver until December 24th. (US only)

      I myself have not received my reward. Kinda sick of waiting. Don't know whether Parallela, its partners, or the postman who screwed up the delivery.

      What about those of us who were shipped broken boards and told the company was bankrupt so they were not going to be getting replacements?

      Please follow up with some of the people who backed this project and were never given what they paid for. It's shameless for a company that counts on developer support to do otherwise.

      @leonidas Shipments were made 1.5 years ago. Too bad to hear that you did not receive your board.
      @sippalrorn The book will be released as open source when ready. If you want a refund, send a note to

      I wish I had gotten even 1 of the 2 that I had ordered. :-(

      Yet not a word about "An Introduction to Parallel Programming" book..

      If you guys are not going to do it, at least publicly announce it. So unprofessional.
