Role in NEXTGenIO
In NEXTGenIO, Allinea is tackling the major challenges and opportunities to performance and programmability brought about by the arrival of hierarchical memory and storage types. It works to extend its performance and debugging tools to enable to application developers to exploit the memory more effectively. This means creating the ability to measure and optimize the I/O impact, and supporting the non-volatile RAM programmability extensions for applications within its development environment.
Furthermore, Allinea will integrate its production mode performance tool to feed the resource scheduler to inform and enable more time and energy efficient application deployments.
