Project Work

Aim of the Course

The course will provide a description and analysis of a few key parallel and distributed programming platforms and models, starting from their theoretical foundations, where not covered by previous courses, and focusing on (1) existing standards for platforms and programming systems and (2) State-of-the-art solutions. The course will include practical use of those systems to develop simple applications.

Overall Program

The course will cover the following topics.

  • Parallel Programming systems/frameworks
    • MPI message-passing programming (the core part of the MPI 2.2 standard)
    • TBB Thread Building Blocks Multicore oriented, shared-memory programming framework
    • Massively Multicore computation and GPGPU frameworks: OpenCL (references to CUDA, Brooks+ possibly)
    • ASSIST a framework for parallel high-level parallel programming with autonomic management
  • Example Applications
    • K-means
  • Foundation, Technologies
    • Elementary mechanisms to distribute computation: message passing, shared memory, massive multicore
    • Basics of scheduling algorithms and resource management
    • Basics of Service Oriented Architectures SOA
  • Service oriented Platforms, Cloud Computing and Cloud Federations
    • Contrail
    • OpenNebula, Open Stack, Rackspace
