SUMMARY Programming for large-scale, multicore-based architectures requires adequate tools that offer ease of programming and do not hinder application performance. StarSs is a family of parallel programming models based on automatic function-level parallelism that targets productivity. StarSs deploys a data-flow model: it analyzes dependencies between(More)
—Designing a job management system for the Grid is a non-trivial task. While a complex middleware can give a lot of features, it often implies sacrificing performance. Such performance loss is especially noticeable for small jobs. A Job Manager's design also affects the capabilities of the monitoring system. We believe that monitoring a job or asking for a(More)
The rise of virtualized and distributed infrastructures has led to new challenges to accomplish the effective use of compute resources through the design and orchestration of distributed applications. As legacy, monolithic applications are replaced with service-oriented applications, questions arise about the steps to be taken in order to maximize the(More)
The Grid Component Model (GCM) is becoming a promising development platform for flexible and adaptable grid applications. Recently, a set of mediator components has been proposed for providing a uniform and integrated platform to access grid middleware, services, and resources from an application. In this paper, we present our experiences with building such(More)
—While object-oriented programming (OOP) and parallelism originated as separate areas, there have been many attempts to bring those paradigms together. Few of them, though, meet the challenge of programming for parallel archi-tectures and distributed platforms: offering good development expressiveness while not hindering application performance. This work(More)
COMP Superscalar (COMPSs) is a programming framework that aims to provide an easy-to-use programming model and a runtime to enable the development of applications for distributed environments. Thanks to its modular architecture COMPSs can use a wide range of computational infrastructures providing a uniform interface for job submission and file transfer(More)
