Video: UPC++ Parallel Programming Extension

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In this video from the 2016 OpenFabrics Workshop, Zili Zheng from LBNL presents: UPC++.

UPC++ is a parallel programming extension for developing C++ applications with the partitioned global address space (PGAS) model. UPC++ has demonstrated excellent performance and scalability with applications and benchmarks such as global seismic tomography, Hartree-Fock, BoxLib AMR framework and more. In this talk, we will give an overview of UPC++ and discuss the opportunities and challenges of leveraging modern network features.”

UPC++ has three main objectives:

  1. Provide an object-oriented PGAS programming model in the context of the popular C++ language;
  2. Add useful parallel programming idioms unavailable in Unified Parallel C (UPC), such as asynchronous remote function invocation and multidimensional arrays, to support complex scientific applications;
  3. Offer an easy on-ramp to PGAS programming through interoperability with other existing parallel programming systems (e.g., MPI, OpenMP, CUDA).
