Component Architecture for Scientific HPC

The Common Component Architecture (CCA) provides a means for software developers to manage the complexity of large-scale scientific simulations and to move toward a plug-and-play environment for high-performance com- puting. In the scientific computing context, component models also promote collaboration using independently developed software, thereby allowing particular individu- als or groups to focus on the aspects of greatest interest to them. The CCA supports parallel and distributed computing as well as local high-performance connections between components in a language-independent manner. The design places minimal requirements on components

Architectural Properties for HPC

High Performance computer systems can be regarded as the most powerful and flexible research instruments today. They are employed to model phenomena in fields so various as climatology, quantum chemistry, computational medicine, High-Energy Physics and many, many other areas.
