In out-of-core computations, disk storage is t reated as another level in the memory hiera rchy, below cache, local memor y, and (in a parallel computer) remote memories. However, the tools used to manage this storage a r typically quite different from those used to manage access to local and remote memor y. This disparity complicates implementation of out-of-core algorithms and hinders portabilit y. We describe a programming model that add resses this p roblem. This model allows parallel p… CONTINUE READING
