Stephen Hawking’s Consortium to Speed COSMOS Super with Allinea Tools

Allinea Software has entered into collaboration with the COSMOS consortium, Europe’s leading group of cosmology investigators brought together by Stephen Hawking. The consortium plans to use Allinea DDT and Allinea MAP to port and tune code for COSMOS_IX, one of the world’s largest shared-memory supercomputers and the world’s first symmetric multiprocessing system to be boosted by Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors.

Parallel programming is essential when exploring big science challenges. Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors offer a highly parallel capability without losing the familiar languages, models, and tools that software developers rely on,” said James Reinders, Director and Parallel Programming Evangelist, Intel Corporation. “Allinea DDT and Allinea MAP fit this philosophy by offering profiling and debugging power in a unified, simple interface across Intel Xeon processors and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. This ease-of-use is a significant benefit for scientists who need to harness parallel programming but focus on their science.”
