Abstract

SPM.Python is a scalable, parallel fault-tolerant version of the serial Python language, and can be deployed to create parallel capabilities to solve problems in domains spanning finance, life sciences, electronic design, IT, visualization, and research. Software developers may use SPM.Python to augment new or existing (Python) serial scripts for scalability across parallel hardware. Alternatively, SPM.Python may be used to better manage the execution of stand-alone (non-Python x86 and GPU) applications across compute resources in a fault-tolerant manner taking into account hard deadlines.

Keywords

fault tolerance, parallel closures, parallel exceptions, parallel invariants, parallel programming, parallel sequence points, scalable vocabulary, parallel management patterns
