The paper analyzes the problems of scalability of modern computational systems, and offers a new paradigm for solving complex problems on them. It implies (1) Creating a virtual computing cluster with shared virtual memory, (2) Selecting a representation for the problem that minimizes the interaction between computing threads and (3) Configuring the virtual computer system for optimal mapping of the pertinent algorithm on it. Arguments for optimizing virtual clusters are given and test results on them are shown. We discuss the challenges that can be addressed most effectively within the framework of the proposed approach.
