Tasks can run concurrently, but not necessarily in parallel.

If you initiate 2 large (1 hour) batch processes at the same time, they will be running concurrently, irregardless of how they are executed (sharing cpus, process time, read/writes to disk, etc...)

In parallelism, operations would never interrupt each other, or 'intersect'.
