CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Sept. 3 -- Red Hat has joined the OpenMP Architecture Review Board (ARB), a group of leading hardware and software vendors and research organizations creating today’s most prevalent standard shared-memory parallel programming model.
“I am very pleased to have Red Hat participate in the OpenMP family.”
“As a leading proponent of OpenMP, Red Hat is thrilled to officially join the OpenMP ARB,” said Mike Werner, Senior Director, ISV and Developer Ecosystems, Red Hat. “We believe that the OpenMP model is important in simplifying parallel processing efforts, and implement the standard in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.”
Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, using a community-powered approach to reliable and high-performing cloud, Linux, middleware, storage and virtualization technologies. The company’s membership in the OpenMP ARB exemplifies a long-standing commitment to the development and support of tools and standards that help advance open source technology and its adoption within the developer community.
“I am very pleased to have Red Hat participate in the OpenMP family,” said Michael Wong, OpenMP CEO. “Red Hat has a long tradition of supporting OpenMP with rapid GCC implementations and strong commitment to open standards. This will help to ensure deeper collaboration.”
The OpenMP ARB now has 14 permanent members and 12 auxiliary members. Permanent members, including Red Hat, are vendors who have a long-term interest in creating products for OpenMP, while auxiliary members are organizations with an interest in the standard but that do not create or sell OpenMP products.
The OpenMP Application Program Interface (API) is a multi-platform shared-memory parallel programming model for the C, C++ and Fortran programming languages. Jointly defined by a group of major computer hardware and software vendors and the user community, OpenMP is a portable, scalable model that gives shared-memory parallel programmers a simple and flexible interface for developing parallel applications for platforms ranging from multicore systems and SMPs, to embedded systems.
Incorporated in 1997, The OpenMP ARB is the non-profit corporation that oversees the OpenMP specification and produces and approves new versions of the specification. More information at http://www.openmp.org/.
