We recently proposed an iterative procedure which asymptotically scales the rows and columns of a given matrix to one in a given norm. In this work, we briefly mention some of the properties of that algorithm and discuss its efficient parallelization. We report on a parallel performance study of our implementation on a few computing environments.
