Final TANGO Toolbox is released as Open Source

Here below the set of tools available for the final version of Tango toolbox. Final version is here! Each tool is accompanied by a Readme file with the description of the component, installation guidelines for developers and users and the relationship with other TANGO components, license and link to the downloadable software are provided. This time, also a video tutorial for each tool is available. Final version integrates TANGO components to make it possible to explore trade-off on additional non-functional behavior such as security, robustness and maintainability. This version is focused on enhancing programmer productivity in order to offer a compact solution having a feedback on tool training in last two versions of the project (Alpha and Beta) and having also the objective in productivity issues that programmers could face in daily tasks. In order to provide some examples of use of our tools several scenarios and the related workflows are described. All components can be used independently or in integration with other components to approach different situations, as are shown in these examples.

Simplify & Optimize Heterogeneity

Simplifying the way developers approach the development of next-generation applications

our tools will help you control and abstract underlying heterogeneous hardware architectures, configurations and software systems including heterogeneous clusters, chips and programmable logic devices while providing tools to optimize various dimensions of software design and operations (energy efficiency, performance, data movement and location, cost, time-criticality, security, dependability on target architectures)

Alpha TANGO Toolbox is released as Open Source

Here below the set of tools available in Alpha version of TANGO toolbox! Each tool is accompanied by a Readme file with the description of the component, installation guidelines for developers and users and the relationship with other TANGO components. License and link to the downloadable software are provided.

Why TANGO? New Needs for Developers in the next new-future

During the last decade the software and computing industry has lived a revolutionary change that deeply impacts on how developers embark on delivering software. The mainstream computing landscape has shifted from single–processor machines, to a multi-core, multi-type machines. This “multi-everything” trend has changed all types of computers, devices (phones, tablets, IoT devices and sensors) plus the option of also using remote cloud infrastructures, also providing heterogeneity.

High Performance Embedded Architectures and Compilers (HiPEAC’2017)

The HiPEAC conference is the premier European forum for experts in computer architecture, programming models, compilers and operating systems for embedded and general-purpose systems.

Overview of the TANGO Programming Model

The current computing ecosystem is becoming more and more heterogeneous. On the one hand, trends in computer architectures focuses on providing different computing devices (CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs) and memories in a single chip or computing node, with the aim of providing better computing devices for the different types of algorithms and applications.

IEEE Cluster Conference

The IEEE Cluster Conference serves as a major international forum for presenting and sharing recent accomplishments and technological developments in the field of cluster computing as well as the use of cluster systems for scientific and commercial applications. Cluster 2016 involves participants (researchers, developers, and users) from academia, industry, laboratories, and commerce, coming together to discuss recent advances and trends in, but not limited to:

International Workshop on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms

The International Workshop on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms (HeteroPar'2016) will be held, in its fourteenth edition in Porto, Portugal. For the sixth time, this workshop is organized in conjunction with the Euro-Par 2016 annual series of international conferences dedicated to the promotion and advancement of all aspects of parallel computing.

We plan to present the project TANGO and its expected results with regard the Programming Model, as regards TANGO's Layer 1 – IDE & Programming Model.

PROHA Workshop at CGO'16

ISC High Performance 2016

ISC High Performance (ISC 2016) attracted 3,092 attendees from 53 countries, as well as 146 companies and research organizations showcasing their technologies and services at the ISC exhibition.

TANGO: Simplify and Optimize Heterogeneity

We are proud to announce and share with you that we have published an article in CORDIS WIRE, the European Commission's primary public repository and portal to disseminate information on all EU-funded research projects and their results in the broadest sense. We have published a piece about TANGO, the European initiative seeks to “Simplify and Optimize Heterogeneity” of new computing hardware and IT architectures for the upcoming years.

Approach for Optimizing Heterogeneity

“In the twilight of Moore’s Law, the transitions to multicore processors, GPU computing, and HaaS cloud computing are not separate trends, but aspects of a single trend – mainstream computers from desktops to ‘smartphones’ are being permanently transformed into heterogeneous supercomputer clusters. Henceforth, a single compute-intensive application will need to harness different kinds of cores, in immense numbers, to get its job done.
The free lunch is over. Now welcome to the hardware jungle.”
