Some emerging classes of distributed computing systems, such peer-to-peer or grid computing computing systems, are composed of heterogeneous computing resources potentially unreliable. This paper proposes to use erasure codes to improve the fault-tolerance of parallel distributed computing applications in this context. A general method to generate redundant processes from a set of parallel processes is presented. This scheme allows the recovery of the result of the application even if some of the processes crash.
