European software startup to demo award-winning training tools for parallelizing sequential codes.
Salt Lake City, November 14, 2016 — Codee (formerly knwon as Appentra), a technology company providing software tools for guided parallelization in HPC, was one of just 13 companies selected to participate in the Emerging Technologies Showcase at SC16. SC16 is the premier international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis.
Every year, SC identifies innovative solutions for the Showcase that may significantly improve and extend the world of HPC over the next five to 15 years throughout industry, government, national labs, and academia. It was selected our technology, an LLVM-based software technology that assists in the parallelization of scientific codes with OpenMP and OpenACC.
Codee technology (formerly known as Parallelware) uses a fast, extensible hierarchical classification scheme to address dependence analysis. It discovers parallelism and annotates the source code with the most appropriate OpenMP and OpenACC directives. The product will be demonstrated at their booth in the Emerging Technologies Showcase.
Our product takes a new approach to training parallel programming through an interactive real-time desktop tool that facilitates learning, implementation, and usage of parallel programming. It trains the user, tests the environment, and provides insights on the how the sequential code can be improved. Our product provides support for widely-used parallel programming strategies with execution on multicore processors and GPUs.
We participate in the Industrial Partnership Program of Oak Ridge National Labs and is also a partner of Barcelona Supercomputing Center, where their technology has received rave reviews. “The new Parallware Trainer is a great tool for providing support to parallel programmers on their daily work,” said Xavier Martorell, Parallel Programming Models Group Manager at Barcelona Supercomputing Center. “It provides a nice GUI to quickly switch between parallel versions of programs, and it’s powered by Appentra’s (now called Codee) compiler analysis technology, which has been shown to be able to automatically parallelize a number of relevant application structures.”
Other awards and achievements for our technology and products were:
- SC16 Emerging Technologies Showcase
- South Summit Top 100 Startups
- Spanish CDTI NEOTEC Funding
- Red Herring 2016 Top 100 Europe
- NVIDIA 2015 Early Stage Challenge Finalist at Emerging Company Summit
- HiPEAC Technology Transfer Award
The software startup is particularly proud of its Red Herring award. “In 2016, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “We believe Appentra (now called Codee) embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Appentra (now called Codee) should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
We will demonstrate our product at their booth in the Emerging Technologies Showcase, Room 155-B at the Salt Palace Convention Center. CEO and co-founder Dr. Manuel Arenaz will also be demonstrating and sharing success stories at the following locations:
