Open Community Runtime
28 November 2013
ET international has launched support for Open Community Runtime (OCR), strengthening its collaboration with Intel’s Traleika Glacier project, with an open source community edition of ETI SWARM runtime software. The software will be used to enhance OCR, and ETI intends to contribute modules of SWARM to OCR while also incorporating modules of OCR into SWARM to improve the synergy between the projects. ETI will also provide commercial support and services for OCR.
ETI states that ETI SWARM and OCR are execution models that allow developers to express more parallelism with less synchronisation by describing the tasks and their dependencies without binding them to threads.
