| This paper presents the implementation of a Shared Virtual Memory (SVM) over a SCI cluster. We explain concepts of memory consistency and associated coherence protocols and we give a detailed overview the Lazy Release Consistency protocol. Then we describe our user level implementation of this protocol over SCI through a message-passing layer and the SVM itself. Finally, we analyze results of a rst experiment.
