PEPPHER: Efficient and Productive Usage of Hybrid Computing Systems
Journal article, 2011

PEPPHER, a three-year European FP7 project, addresses efficient utilization of hybrid (heterogeneous) computer systems consisting of multicore CPUs with GPU-type accelerators. This article outlines the PEPPHER performance-aware component model, performance prediction means, runtime system, and other aspects of the project. A larger example demonstrates performance portability with the PEPPHER approach across hybrid systems with one to four GPUs.
