GPU Hackathon Coming to Spain End of May

Appentra and CESGA are organizing a GPU Hackathon in Spain. The event takes place May 29 – June 1 at the Galicia Supercomputing Center in Santiago de Compostela. The event is free, limited in capacity and in Spanish, with priority for national participants.

Appentra Joins OpenPOWER Foundation for Auto-Parallelization

Today Appentra announced it has joined the OpenPOWER Foundation, an open development community based on the POWER microprocessor architecture. Founded in 2012, Appentra is a technology company providing software tools for guided parallelization in high-performance computing and HPC-like technologies. “The development model of the OpenPOWER Foundation is one that elicits collaboration and represents a new way in exploiting and innovating around processor technology.” says Calista Redmond, Director of OpenPOWER Global Alliances at IBM. “With the Power architecture designed for Big Data and Cloud, new OpenPOWER Foundation members like Appentra, will be able to add their own innovations on top of the technology to create new applications that capitalize on emerging workloads.”

Parallware: LLVM-Based Tool for Guided Parallelization with OpenMP

Manuel Arenaz from Appentra presented this talk at the OpenMP booth at SC16. “Parallware is a new technology for static analysis of programs based on the production-grade LLVM compiler infrastructure. Using a fast, extensible hierarchical classification scheme to address dependence analysis, it discovers parallelism and annotates the source code with the most appropriate OpenMP & OpenACC directives.”

Appentra Solutions will be part of SC16 Emerging Technologies Showcase

Today Appentra Solutions announced that the company will participate in the Emerging Technologies Showcase at SC16. As an HPC startup, Appentra was selected for its Parallware technology, an LLVM-based software technology that assists in the parallelization of scientific codes with OpenMP and OpenACC. “The new Parallware Trainer is a great tool for providing support to parallel programmers on their daily work,” said Xavier Martorell, Parallel Programming Models Group Manager at Barcelona Supercomputing Center.

Parallware Selected for SC16 Emerging Technologies Showcase

Today European software startup Appentra announced that its Parallware technology for guided parallelization has been selected to be part of the SC16 Emerging Technologies Showcase. “As a technology with the potential to influence computing and society as a whole, Parallware is novel LLVM-Based Software Technology for Classification of Scientific Codes to Assist in Parallelization with OpenMP and OpenACC.”

Oak Ridge to Run ParallWare on Titan

Today Oak Ridge announced approval of a project run ParallelWare from Appentra on the Titan Supercomputer. The project includes an allocation of 50,000 core hours on supercomputer. “ParallelWare is an source-to-source parallelizing compiler for sequential scientific programs. ParallelWare automatically discovers the parallelism available int he input sequential C code, and automatically generates parallel-equivalent C code annotated with OpenMP compiler directives.
