Intel Parallel Universe, a free cloud-based application scalability testing service, launched today.
One of the key challenges faced in multicore programming is scalability, which is a measure of how well an applicationís performance improves as the number of processor cores increase. While quad-core processors are commonplace, it is less common to have a 16 thread system available to test the scalability of a threaded application.
Intel Parallel Universe offers software developers an easy-to-use, browser-based tool to get valuable information about how well their own application scales on multicore systems. This tool makes it easy for developers to find out how well their threaded application scales as the number of processing cores increase by testing on a system that is larger than most developers have access to otherwise.
You can access Intel Parallel Universe for free at: http://paralleluniverse.intel.com/. Itís as easy to use as uploading a .ZIP file containing an application then waiting for the results to be returned in easy-to-read tables and graphs.
