A Supercomputing API for the Grid
Sprache des Titels:
Proceedings of 3rd Austrian Grid Symposium 2009
We have designed and implemented an API for grid computing that can be used for developing grid-distributed parallel programs without leaving the level of the language in which the core application is written. Our software framework is able to utilize the information about heterogeneous grid environments in order to adapt the algorithmic structure of parallel programs to the particular situation. Since our solution hides low-level grid-related execution details from the application by providing an abstract execution model, it is able to eliminate some algorithmic challenges of nowadays grid programming.
