A variety of models for parallel architectures, such as shared memory, message passing, and data flow, have converged in the recent past to a hybrid architecture form called distributed shared memory (DSM). By using a combination of hardware and software mechanisms, DSM combines the nice features of all the above models and is able to achieve both the scalability of messagepassing machines and the programmability of shared memory systems. Alewife, an early prototype of such DSM architectures… CONTINUE READING
