“Shared Memory Parallel Performance To The Extreme”

Drs. Ruud van der Pas, Distinguished Engineer
Oracle, Santa Clara, CA, USA



In this talk, we explore the boundaries of shared memory parallelization.
Through several real-world case studies we show what it takes to make TeraByte sized memory problems scale when using up to 2,048 threads in a single SPARC based system.

As will be explained and demonstrated, to achieve this kind of scalability, memory driven optimizations are crucial, but processor pipeline intensive operations cannot be ignored either. Both need to be considered for truly scalable performance.

“A Brave New Parallel World”

Drs. Ruud van der Pas, Distinguished Engineer
Oracle, Santa Clara, CA, USA



All current parallel programming models fail to deliver extreme scalability. In particular if ease of use is considered as well.

In this short talk we propose a new parallel programming paradigm that provides the unification of both worlds. Based upon an innovative and breakthrough concept, this model supports flexible, yet powerful, control to a wide range of applications and developers.

This presentation is meant to be interactive and encourages the audience to provide feedback.
