Dr. Dobbs writes that Vector Fabrics has recently announced vfThreaded-x86, a cloud-based software tool designed to facilitate the optimization and parallelization of applications for multi-core x86 architectures.
Our parallelization technologies for the Intel architecture make it easy to speed up a program using multiple threads, something programmers often shy away from since they find it difficult to split up code and to avoid hard-to-find bugs. Our tools largely automate this otherwise error-prone and lengthy manual parallelization process,” said Mike Beunder, CEO of Vector Fabrics.
vfThreaded-x86 is accessed through the Vector Fabrics website using a standard web browser — the software development tool runs in the Amazon EC2 cloud. Read the Full Story.
