Research Institution
Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) stand to improve and modernize the software development cycle for High Performance Computing (HPC). However, conventional IDEs are focused on relatively homogeneous architectures and software stacks. In many cases IDE based development is simply not an option for HPC developers. In order to open this productivity-enhancing resource to the body of HPC science and industry, a consistent IDE environment that can interact from a users local desktop remotely with the diversity of modern HPC systems must be productized. ParaTools, Inc. will create pre-packaged Eclipse IDE bundles tailored to specific HPC environments. It will offer custom tool integration and IDE workflow development support, allowing customers to move their HPC development processes to the Eclipse platform without significant overhead or the need to switch to new, IDE-specific tool-chains. This project will leverage and extend the Eclipse Parallel Tools Platform project to meet this goal. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Improved IDE-based remote development support will make the use of leading HPC tools and platforms easier and more productive. Already standard practice in many fields, the benefits of using an IDE will be made accessible to developers of HPC software in national laboratories and industry. This will equip the HPC developers with tools to access, develop, and deploy applications on remote Leadership Computing Facilities (LCF) effectively from their desktop environments using an IDE machines. Tahiti targets modern multicore technology and promotes efficient development of HPC software products
