of the problems that will run a really long time one finds that there
are obvious problem segmentations (exploring a parameter space in
parallel, accumulating statistics in stochastic simulations in parallel,
parallel processing independent images or datasets or initial
conditions) that render them EP.  One hardly ever writes a program to
just run one (very long) time with just one set of input values.  EP
programs generally scale (in the parallel speedup sense) nearly
perfectly on any hardware they'll fit on in the first place...
