Cloud Haskell is a domain-specific language for developing programs for a distributed computing environment. Implemented as a shallow embedding in Haskell, it provides a message passing communication model, inspired by Erlang, without introducing incompatibility with Haskell’s established shared-memory concurrency.

1 Availability

Cloud Haskell is available from Hackage as distributed-process. You might also want to install distributed-process-simplelocalnet. The cutting edge development version is on github.

There is also the older prototype implementation remote (also available from https://github.com/jepst/CloudHaskell github].

2 Documentation

For an overview of Cloud Haskell it's probably a good idea to read Towards Haskell in the Cloud (details below). The relevant documentation (in order of importance is)
