We present the implementation and evaluation of distributed asynchronous Jacobi methods with focus on cluster and cloud infrastructure. Asynchronous iterative methods intend to decrease the time needed for solving systems of linear equations by optimizing, i.e., reducing the amount of communication between processes. Two different versions of each the synchronous and asynchronous Jacobi method are implemented to solve the discretized Laplace's equation on a two-dimensional rectangular domain. The asynchronous implementations are observed to be superior in both scalability and runtime on any tested hardware environment.
