    1 = Summary = 
    2  
    3 A1 is a completely new implementation of [http://www.emsl.pnl.gov/docs/parsoft/armci/ ARMCI]-like one-sided communication, i.e. an alternative runtime system for the [http://www.emsl.pnl.gov/docs/global/ Global Arrays Toolkit] 
    4  
    5 = Goals of the project = 
    6  
    7 - low-latency/high-bandwidth 
    8  
    9 - scalability to at least one million processes 
    10  
    11 - thread-safety 
    12  
    13 - modular design ala [http://www.mcs.anl.gov/research/projects/mpich2/ MPICH2] 
    14  
    15 - interoperability with [http://www.mpi-forum.org/ MPI] 
    16  
    17 - software quality (readable, documented source code and robust build system) 
    18  
    19 - productive interaction with vendors (e.g. [http://www.cray.com Cray] and [http://www.ibm.com IBM]) 
    20  
    21 = Philosophy = 
    22  
    23 The design of a device-level implementation of A1 begins only after extensive low-level network benchmarking to verify documented performance characteristics. 
    24  
    25 = Progress = 
    26  
    27 - '''[http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg247287.html Blue Gene/P]''' implementation (i.e. [http://dcmf.anl-external.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page DCMF] device) is nearly ready for release (goal: November 2010). 
    28  
    29 - '''[http://www.alcf.anl.gov/news/detail.php?id=325 Blue Gene/Q]''' implementation is under development. 
    30  
    31 - '''[http://www.cray.com/Products/XE/Technology.aspx Cray Gemini]''' implementation is under development. 
    32  
    33 - '''Shared-memory using Pthreads''' implementation is under development.
