Single-chip Cloud Computer – Microsoft Visual Studio + SCC Message Passing Environment
In this demo with Jonathan Ross, Software Architect, Microsoft:
Bringing parallel programming to mainstream software developers is one of the main goals of Intel’s Tera-scale research program. Microsoft Visual Studio is a widely popular software development environment that can also be used for developing parallel applications to run on the SCC many-core platform.
- Visual Studio 2008 is demonstrated working together with Intel’s research SCC message passing environment.
- This allows programmers to directly take advantage of the cloud-like message passing architecture of SCC.
- Proves how easy it is for a programmer to setup a project, edit, compile and run applications that take advantage of the unique features of the experimental SCC.
