The Road to Exascale

Stephan, J.

Exascale is the next big step in the field of high-performance computing. However, the hardware configurations of supercomputers around the world are becoming increasingly heterogeneous. Programmers have to take into account varying processor architectures (x86, ARM, RISC-V, ...) as well as different accelerator types (multicore CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, ...) and the accompanying tools. Our goal is a portable stack of C++ libraries and tools. Together they shall form an ecosystem which abstracts away the differences between hardware configurations without sacrificing performance.

Keywords: alpaka; C++; heterogeneous computing; heterogeneous programming; HPC; hardware abstraction
