S a I S T Bo S T O N Distributed Parallel Computing in Mermera: Mixing Noncoherent Shared Memories

Programmers of parallel processes that communicate through shared globally distributed data structures (DDS) face a diicult choice. Either they must explicitly program DDS management, by partitioning or replicating it over multiple distributed memory modules, or be content with a high latency coherent (sequentially consistent) memory abstraction that hides… CONTINUE READING
